Research shows that to enjoy a comfortable retirement, an annual income of $56,300 is needed … yet only 5% of Australians retire with this level of income.
A critical pillar of your Financial House
Superannuation is often your largest asset (apart from your family home) that you will have accumulated by the time you retire and therefore becomes a critical pillar of your Financial House.
Managing your superannuation investment strategy and minimising unnecessary account management fees can have a significant effect on your superannuation account balance at retirement. At Lakeside we work with you to assess various fund managers and investment options to ensure we find the right product for you.
The right superannuation strategy could mean the difference between really enjoying life in retirement and just getting by, so we help you to plan to help you achieve your retirement goals.
Australians are living longer and retiring earlier, with many people now spending more than a quarter of their lives in retirement. If you are like most, you will not only want to cover your general living expenses (such as food, medical, transport & accommodation), you are also going to want to enjoy your retirement. Do you know how long you could afford to live once you have retired?
To help illustrate how much you may need in superannuation for your retirement, here’s a simple calculation:
- 3 meals per day
- x $10 per meal
- x 365 days per year
- x 20 years in retirement = $219,000 for food alone!
Unfortunately planning for your retirement involves a lot more than that simple calculation, so for more information on how we can help with your Superannuation
