If you're one of the nearly 400 Equip members affected by the closure of Hazelwood from 31 March 2017, what's next for you is the big question.

If you've been approaching the end of your career, your thoughts are probably centred on planning to make the most of your termination payment and super benefit. If you're younger, you're probably going to seek new career opportunities, consider retraining for something entirely different, or even think about setting up your own business.

Conjecture about the future of Hazelwood has been widespread for over a decade so, while complete closure may not have been known for certain before the announcement, it was a possibility. Like you, we've been doing some background thinking on all possibilities and have prepared a dedicated web page which takes you through what the implications are for your super.

And remember, Equip is more than just about super. We also have financial planning specialists who can help you develop a comprehensive financial plan that will help you step into the future with confidence.
