Bad news comes in THREES for retirees & those 700 who will retire today.

1. Retirees hit as term deposit rates tumble.

The reserve Bank has lowered its rates to the banks & so keeping your money in the bank is a MUCH less attractive option.🔦🔦🔦👂👂


ANZ takes from both ends

ANZ cut deposit rates by up to 25bp on the same day it failed to pass on the RBA cut in full

If you are like I am in those Downshifting Cruisers or InBetween years then Optimising your resources when there are so many rule changes & rates are low make absolute sense.

I read in the Australian today that ‘more Australians are transitioning into retirement over a few years, with more working past the age of 65.’

I can relate to that & there are some reasons why I do.
