You could be better off in retirement

Low interest rates, lack of satisfactory action on deeming, an Age Pension that hasn’t changed significantly in line with spiralling living costs ... each of these can contribute to a retirement lifestyle that doesn’t quite meet expectations.

Retirees typically fund their retirement using a combination of savings in superannuation and other investments, as well as the Age Pension. However, because super came in too late for many to build up a reasonable nestegg, many Australians retire without enough super to fund a comfortable retirement and maintain the lifestyle they worked hard to enjoy.
