We are very excited to announce a new partnership with the Pro-Bono Financial Advice Network!
The Pro-Bono Financial Advice Network (PFAN) is an industry wide collaboration that connects financial advisers willing to provide pro bono advice to Australians in times of financial hardship, specifically personal health crisis. Diagnosis of MS or another progressive neurological disease (PND), or a sudden worsening of symptoms can be a stressful time both emotionally and financially, which is why this service is so important.
Through the Pro Bono Financial Advice Network, advisers will work with people with MS and other PND in Queensland to improve their understanding of financial issues and to help give them peace of mind about their financial future.
Financial advice will provide you with information on how to access financial support, Centrelink payments, superannuation and insurance benefits. Your financial adviser can also help you develop strategies for investing lump sum insurance payouts, a budget and regular cash flow and a plan for financial security.
MS Research Australia Patron Simon McKeon AO is a former AMP Chairperson, Monash University Chancellor, philanthropist and sportsman and has kindly helped the Pro Bono Financial Advice Network to produce this video about Pro Bono Financial Advice.
