Mark, I appreciate you work for a different union fund than SunSuper, but since you seem to be making claims on behalf of all union fund advisers I wonder how you explain this info on SunSuper's website...
"When you need more specific advice about your financial situation, the qualified financial advisers in our Member Advice Centre (MAC) can help you with:- retirement planning strategy,- investment choice,- protecting your family and assets with income protection and life insurance,- salary sacrifice and government co-contribution,- combining your super funds,- accessing age pension benefits from the government.Again, there is no additional cost for this service"
Sounds to me like they are providing a very broad range of advice (including super consolidation) to some of their members for "free", which is ultimately being paid for by the majority of "fee for no service" members.
