There are a number of factors to consider in your retirement planning for this  significant new phase in life.

1. Knowing you have enough 

Do you know how much is enough to live your best retirement life? Consider the costs of your hobbies. Would you like to travel overseas each year? Have you  considered making large purchases such a new car, caravan or housing upgrade?  Do you want to help your children in the future? According to the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia a single person will need an annual income of  over $51,630 whilst a couple will need over $72,663. Whilst this provides a benchmark for retirement planning, having your own detailed budget will provide more meaning for your needs.

2. Considering your values and purposes in retirement planning

Have you thought about how you will replace the 130 hours per month you worked? Are there skills you have developed over the years that you could apply to a passion in your new phase of life?

Evidence has demonstrated that those that have utilised their lifetime skills in retirement have lived happier and more meaningful retirements. This could include hobbies and travel. Many retirees have also found volunteering and giving back to the community extremely rewarding. 

Social networks play an important role in retirement planning. Leaving the workplace and coworker interactions, joining communities has been a popular way to meet new people and to stay connected.

3. Plan your legacy 

Perhaps you would like to leave a legacy to your children or even your grandchildren. Structuring a plan to transfer your wealth to your next generation will also need to take into account any taxation consequences.
