Retirement

Remember when retirement meant giving up work for a week full of Saturdays? One thing YourLifeChoices has learnt over 20 years of publishing retirement news and resources is that the retirement landscape has changed – and is a constantly evolving entity.

But now, as ever, a successful retirement takes planning and knowledge.

Retirement is the opportunity to seek new challenges, to try something different in the workforce or realise some of the dreams you’ve held throughout your working life. It requires planning for your whole future, and not just focusing on your finances.

YourLifeChoices is Australia’s largest and longest running retirement resource, here to help you with timing and planning your retirement, with information on transitioning to retirement and living in retirement, as well as how much is enough and essential retirement income information and resources.

And our quarterly Retirement Affordability Index will keep you up to date with accurate and relevant retirement costs of living, government updates and expert analysis, commentary and opinions.
