On 13 September 2018, Michael Miller, from MLC Advice Canberra, shared valuable advice with our members on parental leave preparation.
Michael provided an overview of a number of the ‘tools’ for parental leave planning.
Michael discussed a number of elements on parental leave preparation, including:
Government parental leave pay (including keeping in touch days, eligibility and case studies)
Dad and partner pay
FTB Part A and FTB Part B (including payment rates and eligibility tests)
The benefits of taking leave at half pay and purchasing extra annual leave
Tax and superannuation contributions
Different means of funding your child’s education, and
The importance of good insurance.
We are grateful that the information from Michael’s seminar will help to assist with advance preparation for one of life’s biggest financial challenges.
We would like to thank the Law Society for providing the venue for this event.
