So, when’s the best time to plan?

Retirement is no longer something you think about in your later years. With life expectancy increasing, it’s a good idea to start planning for retirement sooner rather than later–especially if you want to live comfortably during those golden years.

To ensure financial stability when the time comes, consider talking with someone close who understands what’s important and plans accordingly; securing professional advice from a dedicated retirement financial advisor can also offer insight into how much money you’ll need. Taking these steps early on not only will they help ease any anxiety but give you peace of mind knowing that all bases are covered come retirement age.

How much will I need to Retire?

Retirement planning in Australia can be daunting, but with careful consideration of your lifestyle and financial needs, it doesn’t have to be complicated. The amount of money you will need to retire in Australia will vary depending on your lifestyle and financial goals. A general guideline is that you will need to have enough savings to cover living expenses for at least 20-25 years in retirement.

The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) recommends that an individual should aim to have retirement savings of at least $545,000 for a comfortable retirement, assuming a single person. This estimate is based on the assumption that you will spend around 80% of your pre-retirement income during retirement.

However, you may need more or less depending on your personal situation and goals. Factors to consider include your desired lifestyle, healthcare costs, and whether you plan to leave an inheritance. It’s a good idea to consult a financial advisor to help you create a retirement plan tailored to your specific needs.

How should you understand timing and your outlook?

Rarely do people decide to retire overnight. It’s frequently a gradual process that calls for consideration of your financial requirements, whether you want to completely stop working or just reduce your hours, whether you are emotionally prepared to lose the security of an office and routine, how long it will take you to save that nest egg, and other factors.

As you plan for your retirement, it’s important to consider how you’d like to spend your time. Would frequent travel be a dream come true? Maybe winding down with some golf and gardening is more up your alley. Or perhaps taking the grandchildren out every now and then would make life complete. You’ll also have financial considerations such as health care costs or maybe even education expenses for grandchildren that may factor into these plans. Finally, think about if downsizing might benefit your lifestyle.

Ready to reach your full potential? With the right planning, you can create a future for yourself with unlimited possibilities.

How to Kickstart Financial Planning for Retirement?
