How Much Super Do I Need to Retire? Let's Find Out Today

One of the biggest questions when it comes time to start planning for retirement is this: how much super do I need to retire? The answer can vary from person to person depending on your current income and how much you want to live on annually during your retirement. Most Australians have calculated that you need seventy to eighty per cent of your annual income to live comfortably, but financial experts across the globe agree that while you may think you need to sustain your current income, it's not completely necessary.

"Having my investments in place and on track is one less thing for me to worry about. If I didn't have property, I'd be worrying about my retirement. My portfolio gives me peace of mind." - James Smith

You can live on a lot less than what you actually make, but this only includes your day-to-day and annual budget you've calculated for retirement. This doesn't typically include emergency expenses like house repairs and medical bills that can spontaneously pop into your life when you least expect it.
