Retirement Income Projector


The Retirement Income Projector 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 Retirement Projector 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.

This Retirement Projector does not know the future

The Retirement Projector cannot take into account changes in your personal circumstances, actual future investment returns, inflation or future changes to the Age Pension and tax regulations.

Reasonable long-term assumptions have been made

The Retirement Projector uses default assumptions about future investment returns and inflation which are considered reasonable at the current date based on the after-tax return objectives for each of TelstraSuper's investment options. You can modify these assumptions.

Results are in today's dollars

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.
