The level of income which people have available to them in retirement will be a key determinant of their retirement living standard. Most people’s income in retirement will be funded from a combination of superannuation assets, other private savings and a full or part-rate Age Pension. In combination with the taxation system, these income sources will endow retirees with a particular level of spending capacity.
