Our heartfelt thanks go out to our members and employers who are working relentlessly in response to the bushfire crisis across Australia.

We have partnered with the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) to offer pro-bono financial advice services at no additional cost for First State Super members aged 55 and over, who have been impacted financially by the 2019/2020 Australian bushfires.

If you have an existing advice relationship with us and have been impacted financially by the bushfires, we also encourage you to engage with your planner for which there is no additional cost.

Applications for pro bono financial advice close on 30 June 2020.

As part of this initiative, we can provide pre-retirement and retirement advice on topics including:

  • accessing Centrelink payments and other benefits
  • making insurance claims
  • accessing superannuation
  • debt management
  • replacing lost income, and
  • helping people financially rebuild and plan for the future after the bushfires.

For more information or to check your eligibility to book an appointment for pro-bono advice, please call us on 1300 650 873.

There are a number of organisations that can help you with financial support, give you updates on major fires and provide emergency information.
