Retiring during uncertain times

We're all aware of the cost-of-living pressures biting across Australia, delivering an economic shock not felt in decades. This has resulted in super funds nationwide taking a hit.

And as you prepare for retirement, it's natural to think of your financial well-being, and you might even be tempted to change your super strategy. However, it's important to remember the choices you make now could significantly impact your super and retirement. 

In the video below, Jeff Gray, Senior Consultant at Cbus, shares his ideas and strategies on super for members nearing retirement.

Key take outs


Changing your investment strategy now could leave you with lower retirement savings and you could potentially miss out on benefiting from the market rebound.


Ups and downs are a normal part of investing; it’s important to take a deep breath and view your super through a longer timeframe. Remember, you may be in retirement for 15-25 years.


If you have questions, our Advice Team is here to help (no additional cost for our members). The team is currently experiencing a high volume of calls, which is resulting in longer wait times than usual.
