One of the most common questions we get asked is “Will I have enough money for retirement?”. But the answer isn’t so straightforward – the perfect amount you need will depend on your personal circumstances, your personal objectives and your retirement plans.
Here are some of the strategies our financial advisers can support you with to make the most of your retirement savings:
- Identify your retirement goals and estimate the annual income you will need to live your best life in retirement
- Identify optimal retirement income options from investment choices
- Utilise super contributions (should you wish to make any additional contributions) to maximise your superannuation balance before transitioning to a retirement income stream
- Determine your eligibility for the Centrelink Age Pension or any other additional government concessions, such as the Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card
- Structure your assets whilst also considering the tax implications
- Develop a cash flow plan, if you wish to gradually transition into retirement by reducing your work hours
Our team of experts will help you build a secure financial future by saving and investing for retirement. We will work with you to create an income source to cover your living expenses and other needs during retirement.
