The Importance of a Financial Plan
It’s important to think about the future - whether it’s protecting your family, income and assets, boosting your superannuation, optimising your investments, or planning your retirement.
We spoke to Tony Dimitrovski, Senior Financial Planner from Commonwealth Financial Planning about the importance of a plan.
"A recent CommBank survey showed over one third of Australians believe their savings would last less than 1 month if they lost their job or are unable to work" Mr Dimitrovski said.
"If it’s due to injury or illness, it’s important to have a plan for when things don’t go to plan. One option could be income protection which can replace up to 75% of your regular income and can be tax deductable or taken out through your super."
What's the easiest way to get a plan in place? Mr Dimitrovski says the answer is simple.
"A financial planner can help protect the things that matter most to you, starting with a simple conversation."
