    Super fund - Care super

    Hi to all the financial pundits out there ! Any recommendations for a good super fund with low fees? Anyone using Caresuper? Just looking for personal recommendations or personal choices as I'm finding it difficult to make up my mind
  3. I have tried reading up on this as much as i could--but i understand there are many on here who can possibly explain a bit better and clarify a few queries! Here in the Uk there is a state pension and then you get any occupational pension if you've worked etc etc. What about in Oz land? I've seen that when you work you get to contribute to a super fund--which you can choose or you can even manage your own. But as I see it these super funds are private initiatives run by private companies. Now these are my queries-- 1. What if a person never worked or has worked only for a short while--what happens then? 2. Is there a government provision for pension for all above a certain age??? Would be glad if any one who knows anything about the Oz pension system can post what they know--because this could be helpful for those coming after me as well. Many thanks in advance!

    Child Trust Fund ?

    Apologies to all PIO's if this has been mentioned in a previous thread! Could anyone tell me what happens to my daughter's Child trust fund, when we leave? Would she be able to access it when she's 18 from Oz, or does the government scrap the account? My husband is currently topping it up with a direct debit, so I'd like to stop it if the answer is the latter! Many thanks in advance, for any replies, Nic
  5. I will be starting a fantastic contract opportunity in Brisbane in just over 2 weeks time. I was wondering if anyone had any good recommendations of umbrella companies to deal with. Also, how do you go about choosing your super fund? This all seems a bit of a minefield.

    Claiming back your super fund

    My wife and I recently returned to the UK from Australia. We were on a sponsorship visa and we have a 175 application in the queue, unfortunately this has been caught up in all the recent changes and quite frankly we’re not sure if we’ll ever get our visa. While we were in Australia we were paying into our super funds, are we still eligible to claim back our super funds despite a pending visa? many thanks Lee

  9. Hi All, I have doubt regarding document checklist for south Australia's state sponsorship. I am offshore candidate and I am going to apply for state sponsorship for south Australia. Should I have to send copy for proof of fund along with other document? or Should I send proof of fund when they will request to do so? because document checklist doesn't mentioned about proof of fund for offshore candidate. It shows only for international student for financial support from their parents. please guide me. thanks. regards, tejas

  16. I'm currently completing an application for State Sponsorship from the South Australia Govt. At one stage they require proof that you have enough funds to survive for 6 months if you arrive without a job. The advice is that this figure should be A$25k plus a further A$5k for each dependent and that you need to have signed proof of this amount in a bank account. Three questions on this: i) does the A$5k figure still apply for children? ii) at what subsequent stages through the application process do you still need to have proof of this sitting in an account somewhere - all the time?; just before take-off?; or is it never checked again iii) does the account have to be in the name of the main applicant or can it be in the name of one of the other people on the form, or can it be in the name of another person not applying (eg. a family member). If anyone has gone down this route and has any info or advice on this element of the sponsorship process than please let me know, as I dont particularly want to have to tie up this amount unused for the entire period of the application process, but at the same time do not want to blow the whole thing by not having it in the right place at the right time....

    Child Trust Fund

    Does anyone know what happens to your government Child Trust Fund when you emigrate? We've not paid anything extra into it but we'd still rather not lose it! Thanks Jules
  18. Has anyone who is renting their uk home thought about increasing their mortgage in order to use the money to set up in Oz. I am thinking this may be a good idea for two reasons, firstly, because I am not selling and have no savings left, I need some money and as far as I am aware it is much cheaper to borrow in the UK at the moment. Secondly because you can offset the interest paid against the tax you have to pay on the property. It seems like a no-brainer to me but then I am not an expert. Any experience of or view on this?
  19. Does anybody know about the child's trust fund that was set up buy the UK government to encourage children to save. This was introduced around 4-5 years ago, I think you have to leave it in until they are eighteen the child can do with it as they wish. I would like to know if we move to oz can we still continue to put into the account and would he be able to withdraw from it even though he lives in Australia when he is 18. Kindest regards Glynn, Wendy and family :huh:
  20. Hey there, just thought I'd throw a question out to you all..... How do you plan to finance/support yourself (comfortably) once you have retired when you're living in Australia? What (if anything) financially does the state provide? We are only in our mid-30's at the moment, but just wanting to make sure we cover ourselves financially for when we are of retirement age. Thanks in advance guys Jenny

    Childs Government Fund

    Does anyone know what I should do about these?! 2 of my children have these accounts and i understand you cannot withdraw money from these until they are 18. If you no longer live in Uk i guess you won't get the 'top ups' but what happens to them? Emma
