How much super is enough to set you up for retirement? It depends on what kind of retirement you want.

The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) suggests that in order to have a ‘comfortable’ retirement – one in which you can afford an annual holiday, regular meals out, regular hair cuts and improvements to your home – single people will need $545,000 in retirement savings. Couples will need $640,000.

You may have different aspirations for your retirement. To find out if you are on track to support your desired retirement lifestyle, you can use the ASFA Retirement Tracker.

You may use this tool and decide that you are on the right track or you may need to grow your super more than projected. For more information, visit How super works and Grow my super.
