Will your su­per cover your re­tire­ment?

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

I AM nearly 62, hav­ing ac­cessed my su­per­an­nu­a­tion af­ter a car ac­ci­dent caused by (an­other driver).

I work ca­sual and dis­like our gov­ern­ment’s manda­tory law, forc­ing em­ploy­ers to make de­posits into a su­per fund so that money-hun­gry fund man­agers can as­sert their myr­iad of fees, thus leav­ing the em­ployee with very lit­tle of what’s de­posited.

It might as well be thrown into a garbage bin. Also try re­port­ing your earn­ings to Cen­tre­link who have re­cently mas­sively down­sized their staff num­bers right across Aus­tralia.

Cen­tre­link should ac­tu­ally pro­vide a call back sys­tem in­stead of try­ing to max­imise frus­tra­tion by be­ing on hold for an hour or sit­ting in a Cen­tre­link of­fice.

I sup­pose there are much more im­por­tant is­sues for our gov­ern­ment to be deal­ing with like gay mar­riage and wind farms. — Peter Wil­liamson
