This calculator provides a prediction based on the most common lifestyle factors affecting the income you need for retirement in Australia, based on work by the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia and the Australian government actuary. If you’re unsure about your future costs it’s wise to over-estimate your potential expenses, that way you have a bit of a buffer in case things don’t quite go to plan.
