I’ve been with Yield for more than 10 years and I’ve found the advice invaluable in helping to navigate life’s twists and turns. Highly recommended 5 Stars!

I would like to congratulate Yield Financial Planning, for their high quality of care, expertise and knowledge they have provided in ensuring my future growth is heading in the right direction. These qualities have reflected both in results and the ongoing follow up as an existing client, which I find reassuring.

Have been with Yield for a few years as my financial planners, and was very pleased when they announced their Mortgage Brokering Services – their Broker had great communication, and at no time was I unsure of where we were in the process. Being my Financial Planner, I was much more comfortable knowing they had my interests at the forefront of all negotiations – rather than getting a mortgage broker off the street who is probably aligned with a bank. From a more financial perspective, Yield saved us over $5000 per year through reduced interest payments alone – I highly recommend looking into Yield Financial

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a retirement plan?

A retirement plan is a roadmap for your financial future beyond your working years. It will outline how you save, invest, and manage your money to ensure a comfortable retirement. But more than just numbers, it’s about reflecting your dreams and goals, ensuring that your future is shaped by what truly matters to you.

When can I retire in Australia?

You can retire in Australia whenever you want, depending on your personal circumstances and when you feel financially ready.

It’s important to consider key factors such as; what you want to do in retirement; your financial position, income goals and how long you need your money to last; your super contributions and when you can access them; and your Age Pension eligibility. By taking all these factors into account, you can make an informed decision about when to retire in a worry-free way.

When will the old age pension stop in Australia?

Currently, there is no indication that the old age pension will stop in Australia, which provides crucial support to around 70% of retirees.


In the government’s 2020 Retirement Income Review, they re-affirmed the effectiveness, stability, and sustainability of Australia’s retirement income system, including the Age Pension.

What age can you retire in Australia?

There is no set retirement age in Australia, but in general, most Australians retire somewhere between 60, when they can access their superannuation, and the Age Pension age of 67, when they may receive government support if eligible.

However, the decision to retire depends on your individual circumstances, financial readiness, and personal preferences.

When can I apply for the Age Pension?

You can apply for the Age Pension when you reach the Age Pension age, which is currently 67 years old. You can submit your claim for the Age Pension in the 13 weeks before you reach the qualifying age for the pension.

Meanwhile, the Age Pension age may vary depending on your date of birth and other factors. It’s essential to check the government’s guidelines or seek advice from a financial advisor to determine your eligibility and the appropriate time to apply for the Age Pension.
