10 years from retirement

May 25 2022

Retirement might seem a way off into the distance but it is within sight. It's time to start thinking about what you'll do, how you want to spend your time and how you'll fund what you want to do. Start learning, understanding and exploring your options to make the most of your future retirement.




Think about what you want to do when you retire and how much money you'll need to live the life you want.


Create a plan. At this stage it could be simple, with the aim of maximising your benefit, consolidating any other super you have and defining your objectives.

With 10 years still to go before retirement, your decisions could be:

  • Do more research online or come to a webinar to find out more
  • Contribute more to your super (for example, by increasing your contribution rate) to achieve your objectives
  • Or, if you're ready to ease into retirement, find out how a Working Income Stream can help.
  • You may also want to explore interests you may want to pursue leading up to retirement.
