Micro-savings tool, Longevity App, offers an simple solution to the complex problem of inadequate retirement savings, allowing users to make small but regular contributions to their superannuation, linked to their everyday spending. “With many Australians facing a significant shortfall in their retirement savings, and women on average retiring with almost half that of men, we saw the need to put a new tool into the hands of people that will allow then to change how they save for and engage with their super. Longevity App is the perfect tool to facilitate that by connecting our everyday spending with our long-term saving.” She said.
