Retirement can be an exciting new phase of life. Just as there will be many new opportunities, there will also be challenges.
For people who plan well for it, retirement can be a reward after years of working hard.
Your superannuation is designed to reduce the financial stress of not having an income from work. A great super fund will help to provide very well for you in your retirement.
Probably the major issue you'll face once you've stopped working is the issue of how to fund your retirement.
Options for funding your retirement include:
Taking an income stream called an account based pension from your superannuation can be very tax-effective - from age 60, income received from an account based pension is free of tax, plus there's no tax on the investment earnings.
Whichever source of income you decide will work best in your situation, don't forget to factor in how long you need your retirement income to last.
Setting realistic expectations about your future retirement lifestyle, making informed financial decisions and seeking advice when needed can help ensure that you don't outlive your savings!
Apart from your finances, don’t forget that there are other factors you need to consider when planning for your retirement, including:
