Retirement Affordability Index™ June 2019

YourLifeChoices experts outline the latest government retirement income rules and changes, detail the allowances and discount programs on offer to retirees and offer guidance on navigating the complexities of retirement income.

Senior economist with The Australia Institute Matt Grudnoff explains why a sluggish economy is hurting retirees. Meanwhile, economist Sean Corbett revisits the retirement income ‘sweet spot’ – the Age Pension-superannuation balancing act – and tells why super is failing many baby boomers. Also, Challenger explains why investing for retirement is different; SuperRatings tells how to ensure your super fund is the right one for you, and Janelle puts decumulation under the microscope.

Finally, we reveal how you would fix retirement income. And we’ve updated the cost of retirement for the six retirement tribes – Affluent Couples and Singles, Constrained Couples and Singles and Cash-Strapped Couples and Singles – and provided a budget planner to keep you on track with expenses.

So grab a cup of tea or coffee, put your feet up and make sense of your retirement savings. It’s ready for you now in ebook format or to download in PDF format.
