Financial services are available through the ADF.
The ADF Financial Services Consumer Centre (ADF Consumer) is an independent financial and consumer education service for ADF members. The ADF Consumer website contains detailed information and advice to help you and your family achieve greater financial security from initial training through to transition.
If you are planning to transition out of Defence, you may be able to access funding of up to $1,000 towards professional financial advice to assist you and your family in planning for your financial security post-service. This should be discussed with your Transition Coach if you would like to access this support.
If you are seeking to engage an independent financial advisor, the ADF Financial Advice Referral Program is an initiative designed to assist ADF members in privately obtaining financial advice services which are free from remuneration-based conflicts of interest. The financial advisers in who are part of the program have agreed to provide advice on a genuine fee for service basis (i.e., not influenced by benefits or rebates that they may receive for recommending certain products to clients). This means that you can be more confident that you are getting advice that is in your best interests.
