We frequently write about simple steps that you can make to improve your Age Pension entitlements. This can include:
- Revaluing their personal assets. Hint: Garage sale value, not what you would pay for them new.
- Organising household assets so a greater proportion are held in non assessable categories. e.g. Paying off the mortgage or holding investment debt against investment assets.
- Gifting early
- And many more
