Is your super working hard enough for you?

August 31st, 2018

When you receive your Annual Statement, it’s the perfect time to do a health check on your super account and the rest of your financial situation.

What you need to think about
At this stage of your life and career, being invested in the right option for your circumstances is so important. You need to factor in:

  • your age
  • how comfortable you are with investment risk
  • how long before you will be able to access your funds
  • your retirement goals.

You also need to be aware of limits on super contributions and tax, so you don’t get penalised on what you pay in, or miss out on ways to save on tax.

The Fund’s strong returns for 2017/18 are just part of the picture. You also need to think about your comfort with risk versus return on your investment, and making sure you put enough in while you’re working to give you an income for when you retire – which will come around quicker than you might think!
