Less than 4 in 10 seniors are satisfied with the current Centrelink Age Pension application process with 82% of people seeking assistance with their application process – not feeling confident enough to go it alone. 

It seems that not a day goes by without hearing about the nightmare Seniors across Australia are enduring when applying for the Age Pension with Centrelink. Studies published by National Seniors Australia and featured on A Current Affair point to how widespread the problem is. 

At last, Senior Australians no longer have to ‘go it alone’ – there is now a professional service that offers a helping hand when applying for the Age Pension and the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card (CSHC).  Retirement Essentials provides you with:

  • Someone ‘in your corner’ to help you understand how it all works
  • A ‘helping hand’ to make sure that your forms are filled in correctly
  • ONE point of contact to avoid the backwards and forwards with Centrelink
  • The confidence you’re getting all you are you’re entitled to receive

How does the Application service work?

First, check what you could be eligible for using our Age Pension calculator.  Our calculator applies the latest Centrelink rules to give you a quick, free and anonymous assessment for both the Age Pension and the CSHC.  Once you know what you could be eligible for, our service will guide you through all the steps you need to take to submit your application to Centrelink.

Our Age Pension and CSHC Specialists are available on the phone to guide you through our easy to use website.  After you have answered all the questions, we finalise your application (making sure you have not missed anything) and post your completed forms to you.  Once you’ve reviewed your forms in the comfort of your own home, you are ready to drop them off at your nearest Centrelink Service Centre.  We’ll make sure you that have a list of all the supporting documents you’ll need so that you are in and out of there as quickly as possible.

But don’t take our word for it, here’s what our customers have to say:

“I really appreciated being able to speak with the Age Pension Specialist who helped me get started with the online application. Plus I loved getting all my completed forms in the mail. It was all really simple!” Vickie (Jindabyne, NSW)

“Retirement Essentials made the process of completing all the paperwork for the Age Pension so much easier. We would have been lost without their help. It was a delight to deal with their staff and I will be recommending Retirement Essentials to all my friends.”  Tim  (Glendale, NSW)
