Spot on, and the way is everything set up, how many Australians can save that amount, earning the average $6oo pw, paying average $400 pw for rent only?Vicky Sunday 18 March, 2012 - 4:53 PM
At the moment to be comfortable in retirement you would need a CPI indexed superannuated pension of at least $1000 per week or, as commented elsewhere here, a rental house/unit returning at least $800 plus per week. Without either of these investments you would be living in abject poverty on the government pension.Sam Sunday 18 March, 2012 - 11:11 AM
If I could have $120,000 now my Thai wife and I would retire to Thailand now. My wife has a big 2 storey house in good condition! I am 54 years old. You can build a new 2 bedroom house for $15,000 but you poor sods that don't have a Thai wife will have to stay here and be punished buy the Aussie system and Government! That has already happened to me, I lost my house my money and my children to a Christian Sunday School Teacher all with the assistance of the Federal Government.Evil triumphs when good men say nothing!

I would say one million dollars if the house is paid off, at 5% interest rate its around $1000 a week interest, Or a $600,000 rental house making around $800-$900 a week.
