A Roy Morgan Single Source survey, which was carried out in the year to April 2018, shows that an estimated 392,000 Australians intend to retire in the next 12 months. However, the average superannuation held by women who intend to retire in the next 12 months is $177,000 or equal to only 57.3% of the male average ($309,000). Meanwhile, the average superannuation held by female intending retirees in 2008 was $79,000 or only 55.2% of the male average of $143,000. The survey is based on in-depth personal interviews conducted face-to-face with over 50,000 Australians per annum in their own home, including over 2,200 with people who intend to retire in the next 12 months.
