- Posted by Dejan Pekic BCom DipFP CFP GAICD, Senior Financial Planner
If you are a 65 year old retired couple who owns your own home and wants a ‘comfortable lifestyle’ in retirement then according to the ASFA Retirement Standard you need $59,808 per annum.
The figure is $43,538 per annum if you are 65 and single.
You may be surprised to discover that it is not much less if you are in your 80’s.
