A New, Smarter Way To Apply For Your Age Pension

If you apply for the Age Pension directly to Centrelink yourself, here’s what you can expect:

  • 100s of complicated questions and confusing forms
  • Multiple visits to a Centrelink office
  • Long queues and wait times

Retirement Essentials provides an easier Age Pension application service:

  • Simple online process
  • Only one, planned, stress-free visit to Centrelink
  • Support from Age Pension specialists throughout your application process

Retirement Essentials was the best decision I could have made. They provided incredible support and assistance throughout the process. Their willingness to be available either online or by phone was amazing. I can't recommend this organisation highly enough. Allyson Bailie saved my sanity. Thank you.read more

A big thank you to Allyson and the team at Retirement Essentials. In this sometimes busy and time poor world it was great to have them steer and support us through the process with minimum fuss! I would recommend them to all approaching retirement. Jeanette and John Heathmontread more

When I applied for the aged pension, age 65.5, I was unable to provide the massive amount of on-line info Centrelink require, and gave up in despair. I suspect they are aware this happens. Allyson from Retirement Essentials ( RE ) quickly organised me to complete their own simple on-line forms which I uploaded to the RE website. One phone call and a few corections later I received completed hard forms from RE in my letter box, which I lodged at Centrelink, stating, as instructed " I want to lodge this manually, not on line" To my surprise doing it this way meant my pension was approved within 3 weeks, not the predicted 12 weeks. Allyson remained in the background and supported me, by phone. I went from feeling defeated to successful retirement in 4 weeks! I would be willing to endorse this company and especially Allyson, as ethical, efficient and amazingly effective and have recommended them already to several colleagues in my position. Their fee was reasonable and structured to be paid in two portions, the second only if the application was successful. Definitely a 5 star service, but importantly, a really needed service.

I had the most satisfactory outcome when applying for the aged pension - but only because of the amazing professionalism, knowledge and availability of Retirement Essentials. I had previously been advised I would have to wait at least six weeks before my application was approved and it was approved within a couple of weeks. There was always someone available to speak with and their advice was always knowledgeable. I would recommend Retirement Essentials to anyone applying for the aged pension.read more
