How to take control of your retirement in 2017

Font Size:

There are not many people who won’t be at least a little glad to see the back of 2016, but what does the year ahead hold? Unfortunately, we don’t have a crystal ball to be able to predict the future, but we can help you take control of your retirement in 2017.

So, what are the burning issues you need to address to ensure your retirement stays, or gets back, on track? In the January issue of YourLifeChoices Retirement Update we ask The Barefoot Investor, Scott Pape, to debunk the myth that you need $1 million in super. However, he’s also quick to point out that owning your own home is vitally important.

Marcus Padley gives us a heads up on what we can expect from the stockmarket in 2017, while Russell Lees takes a look at the global trends coming our way. Noel Whittaker addresses the media chatter about a recession and offers some suggestions on how you can best ride the bumps if one does occur.

And, with 2017 also heralding several changes to the Age Pension, we have an update on what to expect from Centrelink.

We’re sure this handy guide will help you start the New Year on the right foot, so why not get comfy and read on. And don’t forget to share this special guide with friends who will also benefit from knowing the latest retirement information.

Should you need a refresher on the easiest way to read the January 2017 Retirement Update, then Drew’s instructions will help. You can also download a copy in PDF format.
