It may be fast approaching, or still a way off, but it’s always the right time to create the future you deserve.
After years of work and saving, it’s time to think about retirement. You may be feeling excited or perhaps a bit anxious – and that’s okay. We’re here to help you navigate through your retirement options, from calculating how much money you’ll need, to understanding the available investment options. Whatever your situation, it’s important to think about what you want in retirement – so you can enter the next stage of your life with confidence.
Retirement is not the time for money worries – it’s time to celebrate life and all those years of hard work. A Hostplus Retirement account lets you draw a regular income from your super, so you can confidently plan for the future.
The Hostplus Pension Balanced investment option is one of the top-performing Balanced options over 10 years, and that’s after our investment fees and costs have been deducted.1 And our pension member admin fee is only $4.50 per week ($234 p.a), plus a trustee fee of 0.0165% of your account balance per year. An additional $54.78 per member was deducted from the Fund’s Administration Reserve in the 2023/24 financial year, and not from members' account balances.2
Everyone’s situation is different. That’s why a Hostplus Retirement account offers flexible payment options, subject to the minimum requirements set by the federal government.3 You also have control over your investments, so you can choose the options that are right for you.
