The Retirement Income Simulator is an industry-leading retirement income calculator, which enables you to estimate your projected super balance and how long it may last in retirement.
The Simulator is designed to estimate your total retirement income, including benefits you may receive from the Age Pension and non-super investments. You can also choose to factor in super details for your spouse or partner (if applicable) and see the impact of a career break or move to part-time work on your projected super balance. This enables you to more clearly assess your estimated financial position in retirement and what you may need to do to reach your desired retirement balance.
The Simulator cannot take into account changes in your personal circumstances, actual future investment returns, inflation or future changes to the Age Pension and tax regulations.
The Simulator uses default assumptions about future investment returns and inflation which are considered reasonable at the current date based on the range of return objectives applicable for Media Super's investment options. You can modify these assumptions.
Showing results in today's dollars allows you to consider your future retirement income in the context of the cost of today's goods and services and your current standard of living.
The 'today's dollar amounts' have been calculated by deflating the projected dollar amounts based on the assumed rate of wage inflation as described on the Assumptions panel.
The projections shown in this Simulator are intended as a guide only, based on the information you input, and should not be used in isolation to make financial decisions. This Simulator does not take into account your personal objectives or your own financial situation and it cannot determine your actual final super benefit or income. Before making any decisions about your super or any other financial product, you should consider seeking advice from a licensed financial adviser and read the relevant Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).
Detailed information about the Simulator's assumptions and inputs is available once you start using the Simulator - simply click 'View' in the menu bar and select 'More Information'.
