About AIR

Who is AIR?

The Australian Independent Retirees (A.I.R.) Limited known as AIR is a volunteer organisation working to advance and protect the interests and independent lifestyle of Australians aged 50+ who are, or plan to be, fully or partly self-funded in retirement. The Organisation is a national not-for-profit company formed in 1990. AIR does not support any one political party but works towards ensuring all parties recognise the issues that are important to retirees.

Our tagline is “Independence Matters”.

Most of the issues facing self-funded retirees now and in the future are controlled nationally therefore it is important to speak with a united voice to ensure your concerns are heard.

“I believe that we need to have choice and control over our lives – we need to strengthen the rights of older people in a range of fields – including health, employment, finances, housing, energy and communications.” Member comment - AIR Member survey

In 2023 around two million Australians were either fully or partly self-funded in their retirement.  Let's make an impact on Government policy and perceptions together.
