Why is retirement planning important
The Age Pension is predicted to be phased out
With Australia's population growing older and claiming the Age Pension, the fertility rates are also dropping meaning there are less worker and tax payers being produced. The government is phasing out the Age Pension by lowering payments and increasing ages.
This is means that the common attitude of living your life and let the government take care of you is not likely to happen. You need to take action and secure your own future.
Many Australians are able to reasonably control their spending and live within their means. Unfortunately, unforeseen expenses can arise that throw their budgets into disarray.
One of the many unexpected expenses is a medical bill from an accident. This can lead to a hefty medical bill after treatment, require you to hire a nurse, or even force you into an aged care facility.
Planning ahead can ensure that you have complete freedom over your life for as long as possible.
Freedom in retirement
The earlier you can start planning for your retirement the better your outcome. The more financial wealth you can build in the time between now and retirement, the more fuel for freedom and choices you will have.
This can mean retiring earlier, or being able to do more of the things you love like travel, eating out or hobbies like golf.
We are living longer
With an increase in medical technology, we are gifted and cursed with longer lives which means many of us will spend more time in retirement then we did working.
If we are smart with our financial decisions we can make sure our wealth lasts longer than us so we will not eventually be a burden on our loved ones.
