Take a look at the future lifestyle that Matthew created. He wants to be living in the town centre, cooking lots of meals at home and getting around on public transport. He’s a bookworm, so he’ll keep himself entertained by reading. Will his retirement income be enough to support his dream lifestyle? Shape my Future can start to give him an idea.


Here’s Joe’s ideal future lifestyle. He’ll be living in the suburbs, eating out a few times a week, working out at the gym and indulging his inner film buff at the cinema. But will he be able to afford to do all that on his retirement income? Shape My Future can help him start to find out.
