Reality is quite different for most who reach retirement Research over a long period indicates that, out of every 100 South Africans who work, the situation at age 65 would probably be as follows: - 49 will be dependent on the state or family - 29 would have died - 12 will be bankrupt - 5 will still be working - 4 will be able to retire comfortably - 1 will be wealthy

11 More sobering thoughts... Salary cheques left Age

12 Historical Hysterical realities? The “Cinderella” syndrome -“Someone will rescue me!” The “It won’t happen to me” syndrome

13 Have you ever pictured your life if… Your husband dies, his business is in trouble and all the policies are ceded to the bank? He is retrenched and his group life cover falls away? He has no policies and is now uninsurable? You’re divorced, he dies and you have to compete with his new family for maintenance? You wanted a divorce but couldn’t afford an attorney? If he retires earlier than expected? If he dies without a will?
