“I needed help to understand the best way to fund my wife’s move into aged care.
Rob clearly and simply explained how each funding option works. The cash flow forecasts helped me to decide upon the best way to pay for accommodation and care.
I now have peace of mind knowing what we can afford and how we will pay for it.”
– K. Robertson
“When I met Robert I had a very comfortable feeling. I trusted him and had confidence in the way he spoke and presented things to me.
My trust had previously been misplaced, but I feel I am in safe hands with Robert. I feel like it was meant to be.”

In particular, I wish to commend the excellent services given by Meagan Roberts. Her expertise and efficiency were very much appreciated.
Many thanks once again for your help at a difficult time.”

“Our key concern was ensuring our mother could afford her aged care for as long as she lives. We also needed guidance on how to invest any money left over from the sale of her home. Rob and Meagan spent time with our family discussing the pros and cons of different options. We were very happy with the service that McEwen provided to our family and would definitely recommend them to others.”

Your super balance could be a significant asset when you die and it should therefore be considered very carefully in your estate planning. This is particularly important given that your super will not automatically be covered under your will.
The ‘bring-forward’ rule allows super members to make up to three years’ worth of non-concessional (after-tax) contributions in a single year by bringing forward the caps of the next two years. The rules can be complicated, and it’s important to understand how they work before using them.
It used to be a case of ‘use it or lose it’, but the carry-forward concessional contributions rules now give more flexibility to prevent people falling behind in their super savings.
