The Federal Budget released just over a fortnight ago incorporated a range of measures that will give seniors a financial boost.
While those initiatives won't come into effect until next year, there are various changes that come into effect in just over a month that seniors should be aware of, and there are also deadlines to heed before June 30.
From 12PM to 1PM today licensed financial advisers Bruce Brammall and Max Newnham will dissect the measures announced in the May Budget, and will also discuss the various changes that come into effect from July 1 this year that will impact retirees as well as those still in accumulation mode.
