Planning your retirement
You've worked long and hard for most of your life, and now it's time to think about retiring. So what do you do next?
The most important step when it comes to retirement is to ensure that your finances are in order. Statistics show that we're living longer than ever (around 20 years after retiring), so it's essential that your money is invested in the right product that will provide you with the necessary growth for your retirement savings. A natural progression to retirement is typically a super pension, which acts as a savings or investment account to give you a steady income throughout your retirement.
