Women and Super

Research shows that women face unique challenges when it comes to retirement savings. They tend to have less super than men for many different reasons, including career breaks and time out of the workforce for to raise families, making it more difficult to build a reasonable amount of super.
This session is suitable for women of all ages who would like to develop a better understanding of financial matters and be more active in managing their retirement savings. The webinar will cover issues such as:

  • Understanding the retirement gap and the factors that contribute to it
  • Easy and free steps to close the gap
  • Ways to boost your super; including taking advantage of government incentives
  • Examples of how we’ve helped members close the gap

Time and Date: On demand
Registration: Please register at the UniSuper website.
