AMP.NATSEM Income and Wealth Report Issue 37: Going the Distance... working longer, living healthier

Document Information


For many of us, when we hear the word retirement, we’re likely to think of travel, family and relaxation. It’s a reward after many years of working hard.

But with increasing life expectancy, Australians may need to work longer to save more for retirement. The thought of more years at work won’t be welcome news for many people, and it raises the question if we’ll be healthy enough to go the distance?

The new AMP.NATSEM report, Going the distance: Working longer, living healthier found Australians have one of the highest life expectancies in the world, and it’s expected to increase well into the nineties over the next 40 years.
