Accessing Housing Wealth in order to Live Well in retirement.

 

The largest generation within the Australian population is rapidly approaching retirement, poorly prepared for that stage of their lives.

Although the so-called Baby Boomer generation has achieved extraordinary personal wealth through home ownership, they are ASSET RICH but CASH POOR.

However, this generation can expect to LIVE LONGER than any generation before them and they intend to LIVE WELL in retirement.

Senior Australians are entitled to access their housing wealth through EQUITY RELEASE, in order to live the life they choose for themselves.

ERIC is committed to encouraging the development of an efficient and ethical Equity Release market, in Australia.

Housing Wealth …Take It or Leave It!

Equity Release provides the opportunity to Live Well in Retirement.  The vast majority of Baby Boomers are Asset Rich but Cash Poor.

Will they take the cash or leave it behind?

Retirement: Good, Bad & Unexpected

“If you’ve ever wished that you could retire early, ditch the 9 to 5 and enjoy your freedom, you could be in for a few surprises.

In 2017 Legal & General (UK) spoke with over 2,000 retirees and asked them three simple questions about their retirement. The results were educating, at times funny and occasionally poignant.

Boomers Know How…

‪The Financial Capability of the Baby Boomer generation should not be underestimated.

Cohort differences can sabotage studies by potentially overestimating effects of ageing.
‪Some cognitive abilities are resilient to brain aging and may even improve with age!
