Australians are living longer than ever before thanks to our high standard of living and medical advances. While this is good news, it also makes it likely that your retirement savings will have to stretch over more years. Your retirement strategy may have to fund our lifestyle for over 30 years. Some of us will be in retirement longer than our working lives.
