What is 'The 3rd Act'?

Typically, there are three major 'acts' in life:

  • 1st Act - childhood
  • 2nd Act - building our careers and family
  • 3rd Act - retirement or life beyond full-time work

There are many possibilities for how you live your 3rd Act: work longer, make a career change, pursue new hobbies and interests ...

As people lead longer and healthier lives, there is a lot of living to be done after the ‘traditional’ retirement age.

'The 3rd Act - Freedom in Retirement' Community is all about supporting you to identify and prepare for the changes that come with retirement, and make sure your 3rd Act is as fulfilling and stress-free as possible. 

History of The 3rd Act

The 3rd Act was launched in October 2014 by Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation (CSC), trustee of the CSS, PSS, PSSap, Military Super and DFRDB super schemes.

This was the start of a new chapter of engagement with our members, with a focus on offering practical information and advice to encourage and support you to take holistic approach to retirement planning.
