Superannuation needed to reach preservation age (Calculator)

I wrote an explanation of this calculator back in January over here.
Blogger keeps having issues with the javascript I am injecting into the page, so if it stops working (again) please leave a comment and let me know.
Unfortunately it doesn't work on mobile phones. I'm not even sure if you'll be able to see it.
Insert obvious disclaimer that I'm just a blogger who happens to code, not a financial expert. Don't trust this calculator before handing in your resignation and jetting off to Hawaii, do your own maths!


  1. Just to tell you I love the calculator... thank you! And also, I am currently using it on my phone, just by selecting 'View Desktop' at the bottom of the screen :)

    1. Nice work ;) Always pays to be that tiny bit sneaky.

  2. Why doesnt this calc include my current super? Im guessing it just gives you goals to aim for? The original Aussiefirebug one has all the calculations in tables to show u how to distribute and allocate money over the years. Do u plan to add that?

    1. I'll happily say that the Aussie Firebug calculator is much more indepth. This isn't meant to be an improvement or replacement on that - I was playing with code one day and thought I'd share it with the world.

      I expect this to be used as a first point of call for rough information. For a more detailed approach, I'd suggest the Aussie Firebug calculator, MoneySMART, or formal advice

      Best of luck! :)
