Mortgage payments to last retirement

By webmaster 04 January 2011 | 1 minute read

Almost half of all Australian households will be paying off their mortgage in retirement.

According to new research by RaboDirect, 49 per cent of surveyed respondents said they would be older than 60 before they finish paying their mortgage.

The survey by RaboDirect, a subsidiary company of Rabobank Australia, questioned people about their attitudes and behaviour towards debt and savings.

The results found that a significant portion of Australians have a low level understanding of many financial services and products.

About half the survey thought transaction and savings accounts were the same thing.
