How you'll be charged
Financial planning with no hidden fees
You can feel confident knowing there are no hidden costs or nasty surprises when you meet with one of our Financial Planners*. Our advice is provided on a fee for service arrangement, and you’ll agree to the fee before we proceed with any work. This is to ensure you are clear on what to expect.
How do I pay?
The first appointment is all about us getting to know you - and you getting comfortable with the Planner. This initial fact-finding appointment is provided at no additional cost, so don’t worry about payment methods for this!
If you decide to take the advice path, we’ll negotiate the ‘fee for service’ and establish the easiest way for you to pay for your advice.
Then there are two ways you can pay:
- If you’re a Statewide Super member, you can arrange for the financial planning fees that relate to your super investment and membership of Statewide Super to be deducted from your Statewide Super account;
- If you’re not a Statewide Super member, or if you receive financial planning advice relating to topics outside of super, you’ll receive an invoice for the cost. The invoice will let you know about your various payment options.

Statewide Super holds an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) that allows it to provide general and personal financial advice. Statewide Super Financial Planners are employees and Authorised Representatives of Statewide Super, who is responsible for any advice given to you by them.
Statewide Super also has an accredited network of financial advisers (“Accredited Advisers”) based locally and regionally. Advice provided to you by these Accredited Advisers will be provided under the AFSL held by a third party. That third party is responsible for the financial advice given to you by an Accredited Adviser.
