Having written and published content for and about retirees for the past 20 years, the team at YourLifeChoices has become exceedingly frustrated by the inaccuracies inherent in this broad brush approach, particularly when related to projections for retirement income.

YourLifeChoices, in partnership with The Australia Institute, is excited to announce the Retirement Affordability Index™ – the only report that investigates the real retirement tribe that best matches your situation, so you can compare your spending.
