Retirement village seminars

The Commission for Financial Capability is running free seminars about living in retirement villages with support from the Retirement Villages Association and experienced legal practitioners.

These seminars are for intending retirement village residents and their families.

The seminars focus on things to consider before choosing to live in a retirement village and practical tips before you sign up to live in a retirement village. Speakers from the Commission, Retirement Villages Association and legal profession will discuss types of retirement village structure, costs and operations. The seminars will also explain some important resident’s rights and where you can find out more information.


The seminars are 90 minutes long and include plenty of dedicated question and answer time throughout the event. Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be provided.
