The rules surrounding the Age Pension are complicated, say older Australians.
A staggering number of older Australians say the rules and regulations of retirement income are too complicated, as too are insurance and other service contracts.
Just under 75 per cent of older Australians surveyed in the YourLifeChoices Retirement income and financial literacy survey 2018 are unsure about Age Pension entitlements and could potentially be missing out on income that could help them live a better retirement.
Then there’s superannuation, with around seven in 10 saying that the system is too complicated and over 73 per cent saying they don’t understand how financial investments work.
Add to that the 72 per cent who find it difficult to find help when it’s time to make a financial decision, and you can see why YourLifeChoices developed the Retirement Bootcamp™ to help older Australians make the most of their post-work years.
The Retirement Bootcamp™ is an intensive retirement workshop, where guests are given direct access to some of Australia’s leading retirement experts, so they can ask the burning questions that confuse most retirees and pre-retirees.
Imagine if you could start retirement all over again. What questions would you ask an expert?
And if you’re yet to retire, what do you want to know?
On 2 June 2018, our first Retirement Bootcamp for the year will take place in Melbourne. Here, you’ll be able to ask experts about retirement income, Centrelink and Age Pension entitlements, estate planning and creating a watertight Will. You’ll receive information that will help you plan the retirement you want.
Also, as part of your ticket price, you’ll receive free access to the innovative RetirePlanner™ tool*, an online assistant that can help you calculate the amount of money you’ll need to live a lifestyle you can actually afford.
And, as we all know, travel is a big part of retirement – it’s your reward for all your hard work. At the Melbourne Retirement Bootcamp™, we’ll have cruise experts on hand to answer all your cruise questions and, perhaps even better, offer you exclusive discounts on a range of cruises.
