Quick Fire Finance - How Much Do You Need To Retire? / Greg Moyle

The quick fire finance question of the day:

"My latest KiwiSaver statement projected a balance of $253,000 when I’ll turn 65 in 14 years, allowing about $200 per week.

I thought that sounded positive, until I went to ANZ’s KiwiSaver calculator, which said that for a comfortable life I would need about $1.65 million, or $1,190 per week (cash, after housing) — about twice what I can expect from combined KiwiSaver and NZ Super.

A back of the envelope calculation shows that this weekly cash is much higher than what one gets from NZ’s median income. Is it reasonable to assume that we need so much more money in retirement than during working life? How can the average person save so much?"
