The ultimate guide to retirement in South Africa

The book

Most people are rich for a few seconds in their lives, the day they retire and receive the money they have saved for retirement. This moment is more critical than many realise – they move from saving for retirement to drawing an income from their savings that will hopefully be sustainable until they and their partner die.

Most people concentrate on the first part and think the day they retire they do not need to apply themselves to ensuring that sustainable income. The result, all-too-often, is destitution because wrong decisions are made.

Why this book

It’s the ultimate guide for successful retirement written in simple and understandable language.

It raises the warning signals to look for 10 years before retirement.

It provides a comprehensive guide to the correct choices for generating a sustainable income in retirement.

It details how to get the best tax structures and cost savings to improve your income.

It reveals the red lights that have been ignored by many pensioners leaving them destitute.

The authors

The ultimate guide to retirement in South Africa is co-written by well-known semi-retired journalist, Bruce Cameron, and respected financial planner, Wouter Fourie.

It provides a comprehensive and solid understanding of all vital issues that impact on retirement ranging from taxation through to investments, healthcare, women in retirement estate planning and where to live in retirement.
