What is a Financially Secure Retirement?

There are nearly four million retirees across Australia, and pension is the main source of
income for most people, once their years of steady employment end. According to the
Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA), single Aussies need around
$46,500 a year to support a comfortable lifestyle during retirement, while couples need
$65,500 a year.

If these figures surprise you, it’s best to prioritise financial planning for retirement.
Karidis Retirement Villages is here to help, so let’s go through the aspects of a
financially secure retirement.

Savings and Superannuation

One of the top priorities when it comes to retiring in Australia is superannuation.
Retirement pension benefit funds accumulate substantially over time, so when Aussies
are ready to retire, they have the savings to support their lifestyle. It’s best to speak to
an accountant to understand your financial portfolio and how much you need in savings
to support a long and healthy retirement. The sooner you start thinking about this, the
better chance you have of finding the perfect place to live during retirement without
breaking the bank.

Quality of Life

A financially secure retirement should provide modest and safe housing at the very
least. A comfortable retirement with more savings gives you a generous cushion to do
the things you love and live where you want to live. With a retirement village, you can
buy into a wonderful community and enjoy low maintenance living without committing
substantial capital and savings to an entire house and land title.

Comfortable Communities

Finally, optimal comfort at an affordable price should be factored into financial planning
for retirement. That’s why Karidis Retirement Villages make sense financially because
the cost to buy in and maintain the lifestyle is worth it for everything you get in return.
From amenities and activities to security and safety, you get it all at our retirement
