Our retirement budgeting calculator will help you compare your income and expenses in retirement in an easy way, in just a few minutes.
Knowing if your income will cover your expenses, whether that'll come from your personal or company pension or somewhere else, is reassuring.
So we're here to help you with that.
Your income during retirement is only one section in the next chapter of your story, as you'll also need to think about your lifestyle changes.
You may find that your income and expenses will change, as you take advantage of being retired. So understanding the kind of life you'd like to live will help you figure out any new spending patterns that may come about from your new lifestyle.
Even though it's not something many people like to think about, long-term care costs should be in the back of your mind - but it's so much more than that. What about starting a new business or seeing the world?
Take a moment to categorise your expenses into three parts - essential, important, and optional - and you'll know where to look, should you need to make any changes.
Here are our suggestions of how expenses may change in your later years. Try to make your own list too.
After all, you hold the pen that'll write your next chapter.
