And in Australia

Australians have radically changed their attitude to retirement, abandoning the hope of leaving the workforce at age 55 and opting now for an average of 65.1 years.

That was one of the key findings of research presented today at the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia national conference being held in Auckland, New Zealand.

The research, conducted by McNair Ingenuity, also confirmed that people aged between 50 and 65 were more likely to be using a financial planner.

Consistent with other previous research, the McNair data also revealed that people aged over 50 were far more realistic about their likely retirement incomes.
