Money Why you need to plan your retirement now

That’s not a bad thing, because the best way to grow your retirement savings is to have money stashed in super for decades.One of the Budget’s biggest super changes is introducing a cap of $1.6 million on the amount of money people can transfer into super’s zero-tax retirement phase once they reach age 60.This prevents future wealthy savers from stashing millions of bucks into a tax-free structure, as they have done in the past.

Your Questions: Is real estate the best way to preserve capital in retirement?

We own our home on the NSW mid-north coast worth $550,000, a unit nearby worth $150,000 earning $5,400pa net, and another house worth $430,000. Would it be useful to put $150,000 as a non-concessional contribution into my wife's super fund closer to her actual retirement. Gross property rents, before expenses, rarely amount to 5 per cent or more of the property value and, at your age, your super fund must pay a minimum 5 per cent pension.
