Our new Retirement Lifestyle Planner is an easy-to-use, interactive tool that lets you estimate your income at retirement and see whether you’re likely to have enough money to do the things you want to do.
You can see if you're on track to achieve your lifestyle goals and see what impact different scenarios could have on your retirement outcome. You can:
- estimate your income at retirement
- calculate the impact a lump sum withdrawal or making extra contributions could have on your projected retirement income
- see how investment changes might impact your retirement income
- estimate how much Government Age Pension you might qualify for
- see what could happen to your retirement income if you take a career break or move to part-time work
Sonia is 54 and works full time. She earns $75,000 per year and her current super balance is $180,000. She is divorced with two children and owns a house with a mortgage. Sonia is considering a number of things in relation to her retirement savings, including whether she should contribute a recent inheritance into her super account. Sonia could use the Retirement Lifestyle Planner to see what impact a lump sum contribution might have on her retirement income. She could find out whether she is on track for a comfortable lifestyle in retirement, and if not, what changes she could consider making to her super to maximise her chances of living the life she wants when she retires.
