Retirement village calculator

Would-be residents of retirement villages should see the NSW Dept of Fairtrading's online retirement village calculator.

If you are thinking of retirement village living for you or a loved one, factor the online calculator into your forward planning.

As well as giving you a clearer picture of the expenses involved in retirement village living, the calculator can help you compare the cost of different villages.

Try out the calculator and see a video of it in action at this link:
