Telstra Super Simulator
The Telstra Super Simulator is an industry-leading retirement income calculator, which allows you to estimate your projected super balance and whether you are likely to have an adequate retirement income.
The Simulator is an interactive and comprehensive tool, designed to estimate your total retirement income. With the Telstra Super Simulator you can:
- estimate your retirement budget
- see how much Age Pension you may qualify for
- choose to enter your partner's salary and super
- include other investments, assets and income that you may have
- factor in planned career breaks, such as time off to have children
- compare the outcomes of different scenarios
- see how a variety of market changes may impact your retirement savings.
These features and the Simulator’s customisable inputs provide a high level of personalisation to the results generated. This enables you to clearly assess your estimated financial position in retirement and consider what you may need to do to reach your desired retirement income. By accessing the Simulator through our secure portal, SuperOnline, your key data including your age, super balance, investment choice and (where known) your salary* will be entered automatically.
Simulate a variety of market changes
One of the major advantages of the Telstra Super Simulator is the market simulator option, which enables you to consider the impact different market changes could have on your super balance. At the click of a button, ten different market climates are simulated and the projected retirement savings levels automatically adjusted.
Easy to use
The Telstra Super Simulator features a brief tutorial at the start explaining the key inputs, and provides plain English explanations of all terms used as you navigate through the tool.
