How to cut the cost of owning a home - and cash in if you need to boost your income

We are committed to keeping our 230,000 members fully informed about all matters important to retirees and pre-retirees: developments affecting superannuation, the Age Pension and other Centrelink benefits; ways to supplement retirement income and cut costs, and information important to your health and wellbeing.

Today, we highlight ways to bank on your home, whether owned or rented. Your home might be your castle but it may also be your ‘bank’ – the asset you are relying on to fund your retirement if other income streams run dry.

As Janelle and Leon head to the Federal Budget lock-up in Canberra to report on the latest developments that affect you, we share our March Retirement Affordability Index™ – Home truths.

This edition, produced in association with Challenger, is dedicated to the home – how to ensure your running costs are as low as possible and how to turn the equity into cash if required.

The Australia Institute senior economist Matt Grudnoff, financial planner Emmett Wilkinson, Centrelink expert Glenn Smith-Cameron, Aged Care Steps director Louise Biti and YourLifeChoices publisher Kaye Fallick offer a smorgasbord of tips, advice and insights that can help you secure your future.

So grab a cup of tea or coffee, put your feet up and discover our ‘home truths’. It's ready for you now in ebook format or to download in PDF format. And don’t forget to watch your inbox at 9pm for Janelle and Leon’s breaking Budget news.
