    Abstract

    Australian men and women aged 65, are now expected to live around 20 additional years (ABS 2011). Typically, most will have retired by or at this age and will require a regular and adequate income stream to support them in retirement. Currently, for the majority of retirees, the age pension forms their principal source of income. However, although the age pension prevents extreme poverty, it has been criticised for its inadequacy, especially for those who are not home owners (Saunders and Wong 2011). The Superannuation Guarantee was introduced in 1993 to increase living standards of future retirees. Much research has been conducted on the adequacy of projected and actual superannuation savings, with many different definitions of ‘adequacy’ used.
