As a DFRDB member, you are entitled to retirement pay (an indexed pension for life) after 20 years of service. Please check if your pension can provide enough money to meet your income needs once you permanently retire from the workforce.
Remember, we all have different circumstances and income needs. But for an indication of modest and comfortable income needs in retirement for both couples and singles, please refer to the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia’s website.
Also review your retirement pay as percentage of annual salary table.
