It is more important than ever to start planning early for retirement. With Australians living longer these days due to medical advances and a higher standard of living, it now costs more than ever to enjoy a lengthy retirement.
Recent studies showed that the average Australian male will spend 22 years in retirement if he retires at 60. That increases to 26 years in retirement for women, so now really is the time to start planning for the future.
Recent figures from the Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) made harsh reading for those wanting a comfortable retirement but who have not planned for their days following work.
The ASFA found an individual looking for a comfortable lifestyle in their later years needs a yearly income of $40,297 after tax. According to current figures, that would need a savings account of $533,088 to provide that level of income for the next 20 odd years. Yet while that may scare some, all is not lost if you have not yet started making provisions for your future.
