In our last edition we replaced our regular poll with a short survey on what you do and don’t expect from retirement. Travel and a sense of freedom and independence were some of the most popular answers when it comes to what you’re looking forward to. Feeling financially secure plays a big role in reaching those goals.

In this edition, we discuss when you can access your SASS benefit and explore how to feel more confident when markets are volatile. We take a closer look at why you could have more income each year if you stay invested in the super system for retirement. Plus, we look at how travel is changing and share some tips on budgeting for your bucket list adventures.

Enjoy the edition.

Exiting in a volatile market – what are the best options for SASS members?

Once you exit SASS, you’ll need to decide what you want to do with your money. In this article we share insights on the impact markets can have on your SASS benefit and how you can manage your investments around retirement for greater peace of mind.

When can I withdraw my SASS deferred benefit?

Our SASS experts have developed a handy flow chart as a guide to when you can access your SASS deferred benefit.

Why timing matters when investing for retirement

The ups and downs of your investments can have a far bigger impact when you’re just about to retire. We explain what the risks are and share insights that can help you feel more confident about your future savings and income when markets are volatile.

Time to travel?

The sharp rise in demand for passports and air travel suggest that COVID travel restrictions have increased our appetite for exploring the world. In this article we take a look at what this means for bucket list plans in retirement and how to make your budget go further when you travel.

Regulation update

On 1 July 2022, changes to super rules came into effect to provide more flexibility to Australians in their 60s and 70s. We bring you the latest on these changes and how you can make the most of them.
