Planning for retirement
How i-Estimator can help
Note: The following story and example is fictitious and purely hypothetical to showcase how the i-Estimator works. The values may not be accurate.
This is John, he’s 58 years old and is a PSS customer with CSC.
“I want to retire as soon as possible, but when is that? I think I’ll need about the same net pension income as my current take home wage.”
With the i-Estimator, John can compare his net pension to his net salary, and see at what age he can retire comfortably.
|Gross Annual||Net Fortnightly|
|Pension estimate - at 59:
||$63,000||➜||$2,249||✅ 101% of current net salary|
|The same pension after age 60
(Pension commenced at age 59):
|$63,000||➜||$2,421||✅ 109% of current net salary|
“I can retire in a month at 59! I will actually get more by retiring than I currently make working.”
PSS customers can retire after age 55 and receive a pension. The amount of pension they receive “in hand” increases once they reach preservation age and/or age 60, regardless of when they commence the pension.
John’s able to see this clearly by using the i-Estimator tool to calculate when he can retire, and how much to expect when he does.
