Retirement still more than 10 years away

Retirement can seem irrelevant when you’re in your 30s or 40s. There are so many other things you can do with your money – go overseas, buy a house, raise a family, or just have fun.

However, according to research by the Investment and Financial Services Association (IFSA), the Age Pension won’t be nearly enough to fund the lifestyle we’d like when we’re no longer working. So the best thing to do is to start saving now.

Here we look at how you can maximise your income in retirement

Some questions you may wish to consider:

How much do I need to retire on?
What is the best way of funding my retirement?
Is my superannuation enough to fund my retirement?
What is salary sacrifice?
How much should I be contributing now for a comfortable retirement
Why are women recommended to make higher extra super contributions than men?
My super is sitting in a few different funds. Is it worth moving it?

How we can help? We can:

Conduct a complete review of your financial situation
Recommend strategies to meet your retirement lifestyle goals.
Work with you to develop a new budget and investment plan to achieve your short-term and long term goals
Review and recommend wealth protection plans
Help you create or update your will
