It’s never too late to think about your life after work

For many people, retirement can last upwards of 25 years. So you might need more money than you think. There are lots of different ways to fund your retirement. Here are the three main options, depending on your needs:

Super and account-based pension

Account-based pensions are a retirement income option that allows you to draw a regular income stream from your super, whilst keeping the remaining savings invested. At AustralianSuper, you can choose to retire with our award-winning account-based pension - Choice Income3.

Government Age Pension

An income support payment issued to help eligible retirees fund their basic living expenses for life after they finish working. Find out if you could be eligible.

Personal savings and assets

Any property, shares or personal savings you own can also make up part of your income in retirement alongside super.

When planning how you might fund your retirement, a great place to start is calculating what your super balance could look like. Use our Super Projection Calculator to see how long your super savings might last and the difference adding extra to your super could make4.
