Retirement Facts

According to the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia’s Retirement Standard, to have a ‘comfortable’ retirement, single people will need $545,000 in retirement savings, and couples will need $640,000.* 

The yearly budget for a household living comfortably in retirement for those aged around 65 is $63,352 for a couple and $44,818 for a single.**

Many of us will spend more than a quarter of our life retired, as people are now living until an average age of 86 years (if you’re male) and 89 years (if you’re female).**

With over 100 years of combined experience in financial planning, our team have heard a few statements & questions around retirement planning over the years, such as:

  • How much is enough to retire on?
  • I want to retire but don’t know if I can.
  • I don’t know how much I will need to retire.
  • I don’t know when I can retire.
  • I’m not sure if I’m saving enough to retire.
  • I’m not sure how much I’ll need to live comfortably after retirement.
  • I don’t know how long my super will last in retirement.
  • I’m not sure how much is required for a couple to retire.
  • I don’t think I’m prepared enough for retirement.
  • I’m not sure when I can stop work or reduce my hours.

If you think any of these statements reflect your own situation, you may benefit by an appointment with a financial planner. At MBA Financial Strategists, our financial advisers will assess your own situation and outline the most appropriate plan for your individual circumstances. We know that no two people’s financial situation is the same, and our advice is tailored accordingly.   

Now is the time to stop procrastinating and get your planning underway, to ensure you can live comfortably through the entirety of your retirement years.
