West Australians clearly don’t like to panic about their retirement — and people around the rest of the country are about to learn how they can enjoy stress-free golden years.
Nick Bruining’s new retirement guide, Don’t Panic: More reasons you don’t need $1 million to retire well, has gone into a second print run after books flew off shelves over the past month.
The easy-to-understand blueprint for a relaxed retirement has raced up bestseller lists in WA and will soon be stocked in the Eastern States.
Bruining, a Seven Network personal finance correspondent, radio host and newspaper columnist, has used the book to explain why we don’t need a fortune in superannuation to live comfortably after work.
“The reality is we have a generous and robust retirement system in Australia,” the father of three said. “It’s ranked the third-best in the world. When accessed correctly it allows a couple who own their own home to generate an after-tax income of $48,000 a year, indexed for life, with little risk, with just $280,000 in super and savings. This book shows you how to do it.”
The book, Don’t Panic: More reasons you don’t need $1 million to retire well, provides retirees and would-be retirees with handy hints about:
- Choosing a financial planner.
- Maximising age pension entitlements.
- Preparing wills and getting ready for aged care.
- Obtaining concession cards.
- Understanding superannuation.
- Minimising fees and charges.
