The following figure (source) suggests that it is counter productive to save beyond the level that creates an annual income of $22,500 for a couple.
“you have to lose $1 of outside income to earn 50¢ of age pension under the income test, which is otherwise biased towards you in that the first $81,600 in savings is deemed to earn only 1.75 per cent. The maths is nearly always in favour of having as much non-pension income and savings as possible.” [Source]

Step 1: Set up relevant domain/ subdomain and install new WordPress
check the directory is empty
set up Let’s Encrypt SSL using My Accounts > Extras
Use cpanel to create new installation of wordpress and keep track of the temporary username/password
In the new installation Activate Akismet with your API key
Step 2: Import SQL database for relevant installation
Using phpmyadmin export from previous server (in my case Dreamhost)
Using phpmyadmin import relevant SQL database
Change wpconfig.php to reflect old webhost SQL table names and change characters (in my case to utf-8)
Step 3: Check the transfer and fine tune it
Checking that the transfer has worked (e.g. change the relevant theme so at least one theme works)
Drop the new tables created by WordPress
Now identify good plugins and upload + fix the theme
Give new and long passwords for each subdomain and link with Lastpass
Step 4: Ensure that all relevant web files are uploaded (using FTP)
Upload all relevant files
Step 5: Make a full backup of the new website and web files
