Professional support as you transition to retirement 

Help winding back or selling a practice

Just like when you started, there are lots of things to consider as you plan and prepare for retirement. Our medico-legal team provides expert advice for things like patient record keeping and handover, Medicare and whether to maintain your medical license.

If you own a business, our team at Avant Law can help with your employment and practice obligations, and the sale of your practice.

Protection as you finish up

You’re close to hanging up your coat, but you’re not quite done. Confidence knowing you’ll be protected after you retire, with run-off cover.

Your retirement outside of work

Cover for a changing life

You should also consider the types and level of cover you need for life outside of work as things change. The good news is that your Doctors' Health Fund cover continues even when you leave the profession. 

And if you’re considering a well-earned break, Avant Travel Cover provides annual, multi-trip cover for you and your family. 

You may want to reconsider the life insurance and income protection you have in place as your lifestyle changes 

Safeguarding your legacy

We know organising your personal affairs can be time consuming. Our lawyers are here to help with succession and estate planning, personal wills and powers of attorney, ensuring the only thing on your mind is certainty.

Avant Retirement Reward Plan*

Thinking of retiring? Notify us before 31 July and you may be eligible to receive a dividend that same year.

I never expected such a dividend and paid my membership happy in the knowledge of the fantastic service you provide in the way of my medical insurance. The peace of mind was well worth it. You have all made my life more comfortable – both in work and retirement.
