Planning for retirement

Our Planning for retirement webinar will cover the following:

Using a Transition to Retirement account

We’ll look at how a Transition to Retirement account (TTR) may help your transition from full-time to part-time work, allowing you to access your super and top up your reduced income. Further, we’ll explore how you may be able to benefit from this strategy if you plan to continue working full-time and build a stronger super balance for your eventual retirement.

How much you’ll need in retirement

Super, like most important aspects of our lives, is not a one-size-fits-all. If you’re wondering how much you’re really going to need to live the retirement you have planned, we’ll talk you through the factors you need to consider.

Strategies to make the most of your retirement

Whether you’re retiring soon, or it’s still a few years off, we’ll outline some straightforward things that you can do now to make sure that your retirement is as comfortable as possible.
