6. Retirement Income Choices

Investment

Minimum Investment of $25,000

To calculate your retirement income we need to estimate your life expectancy. We have set out three options to allow you to choose the estimate that best suits you, and what you know about your family history.

Shorter Life Expectancy – Higher income, designed for those who aren’t expecting to live into their 90s
Average Life Expectancy – Moderate income, designed for those who expect to live part way through their 90s.
Longer Life Expectancy – Lower income, designed for those who are expecting to live into their late 90s.

If none of these options work for you, please email retire@lifetimeincome.co.nz for an income solution tailored to meet your specific requirements.

As you move through retirement there is a risk that your money becomes less valuable because of inflation. We can offer you the option to increase your income level each year, currently we are applying an annual increase of 1% each year. Note it is not a CPI aligned adjustment - it is 1% annually.

Approximately only 40% of people aged in their 60’s and 70’s will live into their mid-8O's. For this reason we give you the option to maximised your spending earlier in retirement. This means giving you more to spend earlier in retirement, then resetting your income at aged 85 out to your selected life expectancy.
Income payments are made on the same weeks as the government paid NZ superannuation.
