It's time we accepted superannuation is not an end in itself but a component of good retirement policy, of which home ownership has to be the cornerstone.
The greatest risk in old age is not that your superannuation balance isn’t high enough, but that you don’t own your own home
We've renewed our call for first home buyers to be able to borrow from their superannuation account towards their deposit based on a new study: "Superannuation and Housing: growing the cake and eating it too".
Retirement income and savings policies could be deciding factors in this coming federal election. Forty-eight per cent of the seats in parliament have a median voter age of 50 years or older.
Most significantly 56% said they were prepared to pay higher tax. While Greens (75%) were the most generous, even 46% of Liberal voters said they were prepared to pay more.
There is a good argument to keep taxes as low as possible. It’s an argument that is losing ground in modern Australia.
