Are you planning your retirement or looking for ways to increase your retirement income?

You may be thinking of downsizing or worried you will have only the federal government aged pension to live on.

The Pension Loans Scheme is essentially a federal government program that enables people to reverse their mortgage if they meet certain requirements. The program assists people to  top up their fortnightly income to the full pension amount, using a loan. The government takes a charge over the property and makes a fortnightly payment.

Southcare Inc will host Philippe Bossert a Financial Adviser who will explain what the Pension Loan Scheme is and how to access it  

Seminar participants will leave the seminar empowered and aware of some of the resources available to do further reading themselves.
