How is your retirement shaping up

Do you have enough for your retirement?

There are many people who are over 65 years old and are still in the workforce. Some enjoy their jobs and are happy to keep working but others simply don’t have enough money to comfortably retire. If you are approaching retirement, you may be interested to know how much money your retirement will cost, and if you won’t have enough, what you can do to meet your objectives.

So how much do you need in retirement? The ASFA Retirement Standard provides an approximation of how much you need to live on when you retire depending on whether you would like a comfortable or modest lifestyle and whether you are single or a couple. To check out these balances visit is-enough/

Secondly, it is useful to look at NGS Super’s Future Super Calculator. This shows how your super is growing and your approximate balance at retirement if you continue to earn your current income. If you won’t have enough, you can give your super a boost by making extra voluntary contributions to your super on an ongoing basis which can really add up over time. NGS Super’s Extra Contributions Calculator demonstrates how adding extra to your super can really impact your final balance at retirement.
