Key findings for superannuation in 2017

  • More than one-third (36%) of respondents rate their satisfaction with their superannuation provisions as eight out of 10 or higher. However, almost the same proportion (28%) are less than satisfied that their total superannuation provisions will be adequate for their retirement, rating it as four out of 10 or lower.
  • Annual income expectations are relatively high, with more than half (57%) of respondents stating that they will need more than $75,000 per annum in retirement. 12% believe they will need less than $50,000 per annum.
  • Half of respondents said they were willing to or already had used their superannuation to buy premises for the business, while the other half wouldn’t consider it. In 2016, 65% of respondents wouldn’t consider using their superannuation for business.
