Retirement Affordability Index

Having written and published content for and about retirees for the past 20 years, the team at YourLifeChoices has become exceedingly frustrated by the inaccuracies inherent in this broad brush approach, particularly when related to projections for retirement income. The glaring omission to date has been the assumption that all retirees live in a home with no mortgage.

YourLifeChoices, in partnership with The Australia Institute, is excited to announce the Retirement Affordability Index™ – the only report that investigates the real retirement tribe that best matches your situation, so you can compare your spending.

To help calculate the weekly, monthly and annual expenditure for each retirement tribe and to keep you abreast of changes in the cost of living, the Retirement Affordability Index™ will be updated every three months, following the release of CPI data.
