Whilst many people work towards being able to independently fund their retirement, Self-Funded Retirees represent a minority of retirees within Australia. Whilst there are clear advantages of being a Self-Funded Retiree there are several issues commonly experienced by this group, such as:
- Eligibility for tax concessions;
- Tax liability for investments (eg CGT);
- Managing investments including share portfolios;
- Eligibility for any additional benefits or entitlements, for example, if previously employed by a government department;
- Conditions may apply for the release of superannuation held by a nominated fund;
- Updating their will, to ensure that it reflects any changes that have been made to assets owned by the retiree.
