Financial advice

Everyone’s different, which means there’s no one size fits all approach to financial advice. At Mine Super, we understand the challenges associated with shift work and remote Fly In / Fly Out occupations. As everyone’s situation is unique, Mine Super Financial Advice offers a range of advice options to help you create, manage and protect your wealth – from simple super-related advice to full financial plans. 

We offer members a free, simple super health check over the phone to cover the basics. If you’re after more complex advice, tailored to your individual situation, Mine Super Financial Advice can work with you to develop a plan that will meet your goals.

We have offices near key mining regions to make it easier for members to drop by, or we can help over the phone or via video link. We also work with employers to provide valuable financial literacy presentations and financial advice appointments at work sites across Australia.

Your first advice appointment

Financial advisers from Mine Super Financial Advice support you with objective advice and recommend what they think is best for you and your future. Here are five simple steps to walk you through the Mine Super Financial Advice process and help make your financial goals an achievable reality.

 

Decide what you need from an adviser

Taking the time to find the best financial adviser for you is important. For more information on how to choose a financial adviser, check out this factsheet.

Make an appointment

You can book an appointment with Mine Super Financial Advice online or over the phone. We’ll work with you to make sure the time and location work for you or we can help over the phone or via video link. 

Confirm what you need to bring along

After you’ve booked your appointment, you’ll receive an email to confirm the appointment and any documents you should take with you.

Meeting your financial adviser

During your appointment, your adviser will ask questions about your personal circumstances and discuss your needs and objectives, including what income you need both now and when you stop working. During your appointment your adviser will discuss the fees and how you’d like to proceed.

Presenting and implementing the advice

After you’ve agreed to the fees, and following your appointment, your financial adviser will create a realistic financial plan to help make your goals a reality. You’ll then meet with your adviser again where they’ll explain their advice and provide you with various documents, including a Statement of Advice (your financial plan) and Product Disclosure Statements that describe each product or service they’re recommending.

If you’re happy with the recommendations, you’ll be asked to sign an authority to proceed and your adviser will help implement the advice. Once it’s all done, Mine Super Financial Advice will let you know when this has happened and you’re on your way to achieve your goals.

Remember, financial advice is not ‘set and forget’, so it’s important to regularly check in with your adviser and make sure they know if your circumstances change at all.

What our members have to say

“I was a typical young person, never gave much thought to super, until the mine I was working at offered voluntary retrenchments. A friend of mine recommended I go and see Mine Super Financial Advice.” If there’s one thing Anthony has taken from this experience, it’s not to think you know it all. “Go and get advice. There’s a lot of things out there that you’re going to miss, unless you’re a professional. I’d most definitely recommend Mine Super to others,” said Anthony.
