Greatest worry of households is retirement

A recent survey by bank “ME” found that the greatest worry of households that are comfortable is being able to maintain that lifestyle in retirement.  The study was of adult Australians who rated their financial comfort across a range of different measures.

The reason why so many people find a level of stress when thinking about how they are going to provide for themselves in retirement is because most people don’t think about it early enough in life. It does take time to build an asset base that is going to provide for you in retirement.  Someone once told me the best time to get started in property investment was yesterday, the next best is today.  I think they are wise words.
