Re­tire­ment elu­sive

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Career One -

RE­TIR­ING at the golden age of 55 may turn out to an un­achiev­able dream of many Aus­tralians, a Ta­lent2 sur­vey says. About a third of Aus­tralians do not con­trib­ute more than the manda­tory amount into the su­per. More than 27 per cent say they do not in­tend to re­tire be­fore 60, the sur­vey of 1741 re­spon­dents has found.

Men are more pre­pared for re­tire­ment than women, with 62 per cent say­ing they have taken ac­tive steps to help them re­tire. Only 48 per cent of women in the sur­vey showed a sim­i­lar readi­ness.
