WHAT WILL YOU DO FOR INCOME WHEN YOU STOP WORKING?

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Retirement planning is about preparing for life after work.

When you start planning for retirement, you want to start as early as possible so you have time to boost your super and take advantage of compounding returns over time.

A comfortable retirement means different things to different people, and will ultimately depend on your current lifestyle and future lifestyle expectations.

To begin with, you need to work out - how much you’ll need in retirement, how much you’ve saved to date and how much you’ll need to save before actually retiring.

There are online calculators you can use to help you explore how small changes in variables such as contribution rate, investment option, retirement age, and more can impact your future retirement income.

Once you’ve had a chance to think about it – talk to a financial planner who can help you assess your personal situation with the big picture in mind.
