With countries around the globe and states and territories of Australia in lockdown in a bid to contain the coronavirus pandemic, it’s difficult to stay calm. The government has put together several stimulus packages – with special provisions for older Australians – to keep the economy and society functioning as well as possible. We have seen the best and worst of people, but here at YourLifeChoices, we remain true to our mission to inform through our newsletters, podcasts and special publications, such as the quarterly Retirement Affordability Index.

The theme of this March edition is ‘Retirement traps’. In it, our aim is to help you make informed decisions before and during the often challenging journey that is retirement. And especially now.
