Luke reviews the question he most gets asked at as a financial planner at Envision Financial – “How much income do I need in retirement?” With a large percentage of the population approaching life after work, it’s a hot topic right now as people consider their superannuation and retirement planning options.  

Key highlights include:

  •  How much money will you need? (How to work it out)
  • Superannuation isn’t likely to be enough if you haven’t been making additional contributions.
  • Expenses in retirement are different to when you’re working.
  • The factors that a financial planner will consider when helping you plan for your retirement – it’s not just Centrelink. 
  • Why risk matters and how it impacts your investments and income needs. 
  • Why eating into your capital is a problem.
  • Luke also talks about a number of financial planning strategies to help you get ahead with your planning and it starts with budgeting and starting sooner!
