Superannuation is the governments preferred investment vehicle to save for your retirement. You may be far from retiring and you might be wondering why you should start thinking seriously about super so far in advance but it is important to engage with your super as early as possible. It will one day be the main asset most of us will rely on to fund the golden years of retirement.

You may be wondering how much you will need to fund the lifestyle you want. The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) Retirement Standard, benchmarks the annual budget needed by Australians to fund either a comfortable or modest standard of living in the post work years.
