Peace Of Mind

Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.

Retirement is a major lifestyle change.

This is a stage in someone’s life where fears come into play because of uncertainties of the future. Most of the people leaving the workforce succumbed to the ‘what if’ syndrome and this is primarily because of a lack of readiness and planning ahead of time.​

The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) provides an industry retirement standard. This estimates how much money you’ll need, depending on your lifestyle.

A single homeowner aged 65 and in relatively good health will need $600.05 a week in retirement to live a modest life and $947.56 a week for a comfortable lifestyle.

ASFA estimates that the lump sum needed at retirement to support a comfortable lifestyle is $690.000 for a couple and $595,000 for a single person. This assumes a partial Age Pension. (SOURCE: ASFA, DECEMBER QUARTER 2022)

We will help you find the magic number you need to retire comfortably.

Retirement planning is a strategy designed for people who are nearing retirement. We suggest you start planning sooner rather than later but no later than 10yrs out from your planned retirement date. We will consider various financial aspects like your Superannuation, current savings, investments, and inheritance to come up with a practicable game plan.

Identifying your future needs and current income will play a vital role in managing a workable retirement plan. If you think you will have a shortfall in retirement, we can strategize to boost your superannuation, delay retirement, adjust your spending habits, sell other assets, or adjust your retirement lifestyle expectations.
