Are your super savings on track?

If you’re not sure you’ll have enough super savings to retire comfortably, take a minute (literally) to check out Suncorp’s Retirement Simulator. 

Suncorp’s recent Attitudes to Super* survey showed that more than half (58%) of Australians are becoming increasingly concerned that their super won’t be enough to fund their retirement.

If this sounds like you, the best way to put your mind at ease is to get some answers, and find out if you’re on track for a comfortable retirement.

The good news is there’s now a fast and easy way to do it.


Introducing the Suncorp Retirement Simulator

Suncorp’s new Retirement Simulator lets you:

  • See how much super you’re likely to accumulate (as a single or a couple)
  • See the impact of making changes to your savings strategy
  • Explore the effects of different investment market returns
  • See how much Age Pension you might qualify for


This gives you loads of valuable information. But it gets even better.

If you find that your current rate of contributions won’t be adequate for a comfortable lifestyle^, the simulator lets you adjust your options to see how you can make up the shortfall.

For example, you may be able to salary sacrifice an additional amount into your super each year. Or you could make some contributions from your non-super savings – helping your money grow more tax-effectively in the superannuation environment.

Of course, an online simulator is no substitute for personal advice from a professional financial planner. But it can give you a better idea of how you’re tracking, and tell you whether you need to do more to reach your retirement savings goal.



Click here to try out Suncorp’s Retirement Simulator. And if you’d like to discuss strategies to boost your super, talk to your financial adviser or give us a call.
