Retirement planning is the process of ensuring you will have sufficient assets to enable you to enjoy a comfortable retirement.
Many Australians leave serious retirement planning until their fifties, seeing retirement as something that is too far away to worry about. After all, there's so much to deal with these days, so why waste time thinking about something that is a few decades away?
But the sooner you start, the better your chances of a comfortable retirement.
By meeting with a financial planner, you can put in place simple strategies at an early age that can have a huge positive impact on your super balance by the time you retire. But if you are getting close to retirement, there are still strategies you can put in place to give your super a final boost.
It's never too early or too late to start seriously looking at your superannuation and retirement planning needs.
