    Episode 27. Superannuation and FIRE

    Episode 27. Superannuation and FIRE


    We’re kicking off 2020 with probably my most requested podcast topic of all time… and that’s Super and its role in the FIRE journey for Australians.

    This is an absolute monster of a podcast (nearly 1.5 hours long 🤯) where I’m speaking to Super Guru James Coyle. We cover so many things in this pod and the topics range from “I know nothing about how Super works” all the way into the nitty-gritty technical details that hopefully will shed some light for us FIRE folk and maybe will help some people out there that are weighing up the pros and cons of Super when it comes to FIRE.

    Shoutout to everyone who contributed to the questions on the Aussie FIRE discussion Facebook group. I did my best to tried to ask James the most ‘liked’ questions from the community but couldn’t get them all in.

    Also massive shoutout to Josh for the transcript below and Victoria who helped with some of the technical questions we had 🙏

    Some of the topics we cover today include:

    - The basics of how Super and the pension work in Australia
    - Tax benefits of Super
    - The tax-free environment within Super and how it works in practice.
    - The major differences between funds and what to look for
    - Children inheriting Super
    - How it works from the accumulation phase to your pension fund
    - Smart things to do if you're 50-60 and nearing your preservation age
    - SMSF, are they worth it for FIRE chasers?
    - Women-specific considerations to maximize the outcome of Super (great tip below)
    - How do minimum withdrawal rates work in retirement
    - First Home Super Saver Scheme

    And that's not even all of it I swear 😅

    Matched Betting Feedback

    Matched Betting Feedback


    Today's episode is about the feedback I've received from the matched betting podcast earlier this year.

    It's been over 6 months since I published the matched betting podcast and I've reached out to many of you who tried it through emails and surveys to get an idea of its success rate.

    Some are positive and others negative.

    I'm also addressing some criticisms that arose from that pod and to clear up a few things.
