For our latest poll we looked at your plans for spending in retirement. We asked how much of your current salary do you think you’ll be living on in retirement. Nearly half of you estimated you’ll need 60-70% of what you earn now.

In this edition, we explore some things to keep in mind when you’re planning for your income needs in retirement. And with cost of living increases hitting a 20-year peak, we take a closer look at what inflation means for your retirement spending and income. Plus, we talk to our Aware Super team about their tips for looking after your health and wellbeing – as well as your finances – before and after retirement.

Enjoy the edition.
