Financial freedom without boundaries.

The success of Sterling KPG is attributed to taking a genuine and active interest in our clients’ financial affairs. Here are a few questions that we commonly get asked regarding our services.

Commonly Asked Questions

When should I start getting retirement advice?

You can start making a retirement plan today!

Using smart saving strategies and giving yourself more time to save, will all work in your favour.  Setting goals early might just allow you to retire sooner than you think.

How much does financial advice cost?

It depends.  As no two people are the same, we don’t charge everyone the same fees.  When we get to know you and establish how we can help, we prepare your Client Engagement Letter so you know an estimate of costs before we start.  For an indication of what you could pay, the Moneysmart website sets out an example of financial advice fees.

How much money can I have and still get an Age pension?

Centrelink assesses your eligibility for the pension using an
Income and Asset test, and not all assets are assessed in the same way.  Simple factors such as the date of purchase
may affect how the asset is treated.  Knowing these rules helps us to put together strategies which can help maximise your entitlements.

For more information about the Age Pension see the Services Australia website.
