Have you been paying attention to your super?
It’s at least 9.5% of our income and one of the biggest assets we’ll ever have. Yet many of us don’t take the time to understand or manage our super. When it comes down to it, your super balance will significantly impact your quality of life throughout retirement. So, why do we ignore it?
Australians put off thinking about their super for a number of reasons. Some of us consider the topic of super to be a snooze fest. Others find it too complex. The industry jargon is difficult to make sense of and navigating the different options can be overwhelming. Younger people view the concept of retirement as a distant concern, while pre-retirees may harbour regrets for not having saved enough, and avoid the conversation altogether. This can all lead to people making poor super decisions, or sometimes, making no decisions at all.
