How can I make the most of my super nearing retirement?

Your superannuation is your foundation for a comfortable, secure retirement. However, if left unattended, your balance might not cover the expenses to meet your life dreams.

After years of working, it’s easy for your superannuation to slip to the back of your mind. But, as you’re nearing retirement it’s a good idea to start making the most of what you’ve got.

When should I start planning my retirement?

The best time to start planning your retirement is when you get your first job. The second best time is now. The truth is, it’s never too late or too early to start retirement planning.

People who are more engaged with their finances are more likely to make additional contributions to their super.
