A Reality Check For Your Super

Yves SchoofSuper

Most people have no idea about how much they need in super for a comfortable retirement.

The below article will give you some insight into what the average person/couple would need for a comfortable retirement.

However, based on my experience in working with doctors and dentists, I believe you will need a lot more than what is stated in the article.

To have a comfortable lifestyle of around $100-120,000 p.a. in retirement, I believe most couples would require around $2m-$2.5m depending on what age you retire.

Obviously, if you have substantial investment outside of super, this amount will need to be adjusted.

So this might be a good time to check how well on track you are to achieve that goal. Because, super contributions limits are quite low, so it will be harder to catch up later in life.

I specialise in managing and coordinating the financial affairs of medical professionals and have been recognised as one of the best financial planners in Australia. I am a Certified Financial Planner and member of the Financial Planning Association of Australia.

As I understand your time is extremely valuable and scarce, I am able to offer flexible meetings times, including outside business hours and during the weekend. I can even come and meet you somewhere convenient, or talk via videoconference on Skype.

My first consultation is free. I allocate up to 90 minutes to discuss your personal circumstances and to establish how I may best assist you. Where you already have an existing adviser, I would be happy to offer a second opinion. I always quote a fixed dollar fee before we start working together.
