    1. Find a trusted financial adviser.  A fee for service financial planner who is recommended to you by someone you know and trust can help you plan for retirement and make the most of your resources in ways you might not have anticipated. Often using the superannuation, tax and social security systems can add as much value as the return on the investments. you may look at consolidating your superannuation, moving investments in to a lower-income earner s name, leveraging the equity in your home or investments or taking more control of your future using a Self Managed Super fund or a Member Directed Option in your industry or retail fund. Don’t dip in to your super. Just because you reach preservation age you should not be tempted to dip into your retirement savings. You can use strategies like Transition to Retirement pensions combined with Salary Sacrifice to actually receive the same take home income but in a more tax effective way and also better after tax returns on your savings.
