Your super is there to help you live a comfortable retirement. The government guarantee (known as the Superannuation Guarantee) means that your employer must make regular contributions to your super account – currently, they must contribute 10.5% of your salary.

You can also make your own contributions, and many people do. After all, the more you have in your super account, the more comfortable your retirement will be.

But how much do you need? Well, that depends on a number of things, including how long you live and what kind of lifestyle you want in retirement.

That’s where eairwoman can help. There are a number of variables to consider including when you plan to retire, how much you currently have saved, how much extra you can save and your investment returns. All of these can be modelled in the app along with ‘What If’ scenarios if you were to change any of these factors. See below for a summary of where to start exploring. 

You can also talk to a financial adviser. They can help you understand your options and make the best decisions for your individual circumstances.
