    I'm 37 and have approx 100k. Never been out of the workforce, although DH is the same age and only has around 20k. He is currently self employed and is main carer for DD, also has always earned significantly less in industries that are notoriously low paying, he also spent many years working in a family business where he was paid a living wage but no super.

    I'm 42 and have next to nothing! I've only lived in Australia for 7 years and only spent just over 12 months working. I'm still currently a sahm.

    My American friend said they don't really do super over there. I'm glad I live here.

    I'm not sure how much I have. My guess would be around 50k. This thread has reminded me to check

    I have mo idea to be honest, but DH and I put all of our money into paying off our mortgage, so we can retire mortgage free which is a HUGE benefit as it also saves interest and less time paying off the mortgage and is financially a far better way to save money than putting it into super.

    I have been in same job since I left uni, with 3 lots of mat leave, I think I have about $80K. Hubby in military and although not on the old scheme pension, the super scheme is pretty good- I think he already has $350K in there.

    I'm 30 and I think I have between $30K-$35K. I'm single. I put a minimum amount of member contributions in and will continue to do so. I don't think I'll put too much more than that in though, I'd rather put the extra money into a savings and start working towards that house- but I do like to diversify my investments so I like to have that minimum amount going in each week.

    I'm 26 & have $10k, DF is 28 and has $40k, neither of us make additional contributions, we own one business and are about to buy another, these alone would see us living a very comfortable retirement. We also have an investment property. Super isn't where I intend on putting any additional money.

    DH and I both work for state government. We have about $400k combined, and both make 9% voluntary contribution. We have an investment property that is only just negatively geared, and owe approx 70% of the value of our primary residence, however we're in a high growth area. I think we're on track to retire around 60-65 ( we're 35-36), but who knows what the future holds :-)
