More benefits available for veterans through Force 4 Families
Do you have investments and are concerned at the low returns you are currently receiving from the banks?
Then have a look at the NZDF FlexiSaver Scheme. This is a managed fund with a range of investment options which was launched in 2015 for members of the Defence community, including Veterans and their families. There are now 2,224 members and $38m invested. The fund manager is Mercer, a reputable company with many years of experience investing funds both in NZ and internationally.
While there is no guarantee, funds are invested across a broad range of investments to mitigate risk and maximise returns. There are a range of investment options and a discounted financial advice service is available to help people with investment decisions.
This scheme is one of a number of benefits available through the Force Financial Hub to Veterans and other former members of Defence, and families.
These benefits include:
- a discounted financial advice and mortgage broker service
- funeral plan
- Wills and power of attorney service
- comprehensive insurances for life and property and vehicles.
According to NZDF Benefits Manager, Mark Williamson, the Force Financial Hub has been set up to raise the financial security and capability of Defence community households.
“We want to make sure the Veterans community is aware of the benefits available to them through the Force Financial Hub. These benefits are another tangible way of recognising the contribution made by Veterans and their families”.
