I highly recommend it, Mr Dog. Been in that zone myself since last July. Grouse being able to get up and have the biggest worry being "Hmmm, what am I going to do today?". Pulled the pin as early as I possibly could after doing the numbers myself and realising that I had more than enough to live comfortably for the next 30 years sans Govt pension. Am very happy with my Self-managed Super performance.

A question? In Aus do you go onto a fixed annuity that dies with you, or one that you manage and the capital stays intact?

I'll be on a fixed annuity but not managed by me. The capital stays intact & reverts to my estate if i die.

Yes. Only part of my super is in the Fixed Annuity which is only for a limited time. I may be talking out my ass here. I only had it all explained to me on friday & i've yet to go through the fine details.

Thanks. I would have thought the fixed annuity would have continued until death as is the case here, but then the capital also dies with you.

Well done! December 1st. Just in time for the cricket season (well in another time).

Taips what kind of mad, crazy social utopian wet dream do you live in? Was it your capital to start with?

We call those lifetime annuities here (a fixed annuity is for a fixed term). For a lifetime annuity, the capital would die with you (I think once you reach a certain age).

For the record - I am now in my "hump year" - halfway through my working life (assuming I retire at 67).

But as a measure of how farked up the Australian retirement rules are, if I retired now just about all my net wealth would be in my house which would mean I could claim the full aged pension despite having worked for the last 14 years in investment banking.

On the other hand, my mother in law has just retired and she isn't eligible for the pension, despite earning two fifths of fark all for most of her life because her mother just passed away and left her with just enough money to bump her out of pension eligibility.

As I say, it's a farked up system.

I assume you mean "if I retired now, and was old enough"??
