Super made super simple: experts to visit Townsville to help Veterans
A team of experts will be visiting Townsville next month to help the region’s serving and ex-serving Veterans demystify and simplify their superannuation.
01 Dec 2020
CSC heard first-hand the issues facing the Veteran community in Townsville following a meeting with Chairman of The Oasis Townsville, Retired Lieutenant General John Caligari in June this year. To help tackle some of those issues a team of superannuation and financial education experts from CSC will be attending a Financial Education Hub at Townsville City Council Reception Room on Tuesday 10 September. Entirely free, and run in collaboration with The Oasis Townsville, the services available to Veterans on the day will include one-on-one consultations and information seminars about how to grow and access superannuation.
A number of community and ex-service organisations will also be in attendance to lend a hand and provide additional support to the people of Townsville.
A number of popular topics related to superannuation will be covered, including transitioning from the ADF, insurance, transitioning to retirement, and the best ways to boost retirement savings.
CSC’s Chief Customer Officer, Peter Jamieson said superannuation is a topic many people avoid, but it’s too important to ignore.
“We know that a lot of people put super into the ‘too hard’ basket, but we’re trying to change that by coming to where our customers live and work,” Mr Jamieson said.
“We’ll be giving people some really simple explanations and practical tools that will help them get the most from their super, so we encourage people to come along and ask the questions they’ve always wanted to ask.
“This will be a great opportunity to speak face-to-face with an expert in military superannuation.”
CSC is the superannuation provider for Australia’s serving and ex-serving defence force community. CSC manages a number of military superannuation funds, including ADF Super, MilitarySuper and DFRDB.Led by David Wilton, an Army Veteran and now CSC’s National Manager of Defence and Veterans Liaison, the team of CSC superannuation and financial experts will be on-site at Townsville City Council Reception Room, 103 Walker Street between 8:30am-12pm on Tuesday 10 September.
