Retirement Planning Advice

Plan for your retirement

Your retirement is easily one of the most important financial events you need to consider. Unfortunately a large number of people often don’t start thinking about retirement until they are about to stop work or have the decision forced on them.

Planning for your retirement is easy to put off or forget about when it seems like its long time away but as each year passes it becomes more and more important to get your planning started.

It’s all about achieving the lifestyle you want

So while most of us have superannuation thanks to the Superannuation Guarantee, it’s important to consider whether this will be enough for you to achieve the lifestyle you want in retirement. It’s important to note that superannuation may not be the only source of income. The age pension and personal investments are other streams of income that might form part of your plan.

With a little planning, you can make a big difference to your retirement outcome. What does your retirement look like? Whether it’s travel, volunteering, more time with the grandkids, writing that book, gardening or a combination of lots of activities we can help you get there.

It’s OK if you’re feeling anxious about it and don’t know where to start.  Start by talking to us and we’ll help point you in the right direction.  The important bit is to start.
