Yumi Lee is 56 and should be looking forward to retiring in the next decade.

But after years out of the workforce and time working overseas, she has less than $10,000 in superannuation.

Yumi’s not alone in worrying about her retirement.

Six out of 10 of us consider being able to retire comfortably a personal problem, while about nine out of 10 of us consider it a national problem, according to the ABC’s Australia Talks National Survey 2021.

And if you’re a woman, you’re more likely to be worried about having a comfortable retirement than a man would.

That’s not surprising, considering that on average, women retire with about half the amount of super that men do.

After all, women are more likely to take on caring responsibilities and work part-time.

Like many women, Yumi will have to rely on her husband’s superannuation when she retires. It’s a prospect that she is not entirely comfortable with.

She knows how quickly personal circumstances can change, given her advocacy role as manager of the Older Women’s Network in NSW.

“With my work history and lack of savings, I will be one of those in that cohort of older women who really struggle.”
