Aged Pension, Health Care Cards, Superannuation Co-Contribution, Family Tax Benefits, Child Care Rebate, the list goes on, and on, and on.
Then just for extra complexity, the Government of the day (no matter what their colour) continues to tweak and change the rules for all of these social security measures.
No wonder people come to us asking if they are (a) getting all they are entitled to and (b) whether they can access anything extra.
Some people feel that it is ‘not right’ to seek to optimise the receipt of government benefits, but at the end of it all, those benefits are there to support people who have contributed to society and who have paid their share of taxes along the way and who the government (and therefore the country) have decided are entitled to it.
We therefore feel that providing you are working within the rules set down by government (and preferably keeping with the black and white areas and therefore keeping out of the “grey” areas of optimising benefits) then we will help you ensure you get what you are entitled to.
If the above sounds like one of your financial quandaries, then we’d suggest you contact us to see how we can help.
