Prepare for retirement

Take control of your financial future to help you enjoy a more comfortable retirement

Gearing up to slow down?






It’s never too early

Start preparing for retirement today. By having a structured financial plan as early as possible, you’ll be putting yourself in the best position for the future.

To give you an understanding of your total potential retirement balance, consider how you manage your savings, your super balance and structure, any investments you have and any pensions you are, or will be, eligible for.

How much do you need?

It’s important to have a goal in place when making plans.

A handy calculator provided by the Australian Security & Investments Commission can help you work out how much super you'll have when you retire and how fees will affect your final payout.

The fund that fits

Super is money that you have earned, and in most cases you can choose where your super goes, so do your research to find the best fund to suit your needs.

If you haven’t chosen your own super fund, your employer will usually pay your super contributions to their default super fund. This may not be the best fund for your situation, so it pays to make informed decisions.

If you're looking for complete control of your super, it may pay to think about a self-managed super fund.

That little bit extra

Your employer generally pays a Superannuation Guarantee of 9.5% (an increase of 0.25% from 1st July 2014) of your salary to your super fund.

Making extra contributions from your pre-tax wages is a great way to reduce taxable income and increase your final super payout, and there may also be tax incentives for putting in that little bit extra. 

Saving for retirement

Watch your assets grow 

Saving is the foundation of any long-term financial success. When setting financial goals for retirement, it’s important to understand where your income is currently coming from, and your spending habits so you can identify how much you can afford to save.

Proper management of your savings will see your assets grow and grow and grow...
