Post-retirement case study
You are required to use the following case study to complete the
assessment questions.
Please read it carefully and pay particular attention to the quantitative
measures of the scenario.
Ida, who is 75, has recently been widowed following the death of her husband
Eric, who was aged 77. Ida and Eric have three children, John (51), Philip (48),
and Cheyenne (45). All three children are independent, with Philip and John
having their own family. Cheyenne has had numerous relationship problems, has
been married twice, and has three children from separate fathers.
Ida owned her home as joint tenants with her late husband and this is now in her
own name. There is no outstanding mortgage nor other debts. She has recently
received a $200,000 inheritance from her late mother’s estate.
Ida is fully retired and only worked for a few years before she married Eric.
Ida’s general living expenses are $3,000 per month (this does not include any of
the specific expenses mentioned below).
Ida’s home and contents insurance premium is $749 per annum. Ida also has a
ten-year-old Honda Civic. The comprehensive insurance premium for the car is
$565 p.a. and she has compulsory third party insurance with a premium of $626
per annum. She also has health insurance with a premium of $1,152 p.a. She
pays all these bills by cheque. Ida does not have any other insurance.
Ida goes on regular National Seniors coach trips that cost on average $675 per
quarter. She is also planning an organised European Heritage tour. The total
package, including airfares, etc. is $9,000.
Ida has a four-year term deposit of $20,000, earning 2.5%, with the interest paid
monthly. This term deposit is due to mature in six months. In addition, she has a
cheque account, which rarely has a balance of over $1,000, that does not pay
interest and she is charged $5 per month.
Ida has a superannuation fund with a balance of $79,000 made up of $36,000
tax free component and $43,000 taxable component (element taxed). She has
continued to hold her superannuation benefit within the accumulation phase so
she can use it to cover any excess costs and to use as an emergency fund.
Her belief is that if it is used as an income stream she will lose access to the
Eric’s superannuation benefit was in the pension phase, that he commenced just
prior to attaining age 65 with a purchase price of $225,000. At the time of Eric’s
death, the balance was $161,000 made up of $68,000 tax-free component and
$93,000 taxable component (element taxed), he was receiving income payments
of $9,660 per annum. Eric commenced this account based pension prior to 1
January 2015, and has continuously received aged pension since this date. Ida is
the automatic reversionary beneficiary.
Ida has been advised that she will have a reduction in her Age Pension entitlement,
which she is unhappy about. She would like to have the same amount of Age Pension
she had when Eric was still alive.
