How long will your savings need to last?

Australians are living longer. In fact, there's a good chance if you're 65 now that you'll live into your 90s. 

That generally means that retirements are getting longer too. It's fantastic news! But with more years to enjoy your retirement, you'll need to ensure your money lasts as long as you do.
