We Are Here To Serve You

Edplan has advised over 8,000 teachers. As an employee owned advisory service, and not beholden to any bank or other financial institution. We are not associated with State Super, the Teachers Credit Union or any government body. Our advice is balanced, objective, specialised and personalised; we provide a client experience unmatched by other practices, creating confidence for teaching professionals in financing their lifestyle and retirement.

We realise that teaching professionals have a unique work pattern and availability. Our flexibility with consultations is your advantage! With an easily accessible office in the Sydney CBD, and frequent advice seminars being conducted around the state, our advisers are available to everyone.

Edplan offers services to all metropolitan and regional areas, with a permanent presence in the CBD.

We typically run talks during a Staff Meeting or on a Staff Development Day, also for Principals and Executive Staff at their respective conferences.

Edplan is a regular contributor and sponsor at most Principal and Executive conferences state-wide. Edplan often presents at these conferences, conducting informative talks on financial issues that affect the teaching community.
