When it comes time to retire, you want to thrive; you want to LIVE the life you’ve always dreamed of.
After you know how much money you’ll need for retirement, it’s time to develop a financial strategy that considers all possible sources of income. With our financial know-how in your corner, you can make sure you’re doing everything you can to make your retirement the very best it can be.
Risk tolerance, retirement age, current savings and retirement plans, supplementary income, desired lifestyle, and more all play a role in the retirement strategy you develop.
Here are a few of the questions you should be asking yourself before settling on a strategy:
How Early Should I Start Saving for Retirement?The easy answer is, “It’s never too early to start saving for retirement.” But a better response has more facets, including which savings methods are best.
How Can I Get the Maximum Benefit from Social Security?Your Social Security benefit alone will never be enough for retirement, but it is a piece of the puzzle that should not be overlooked. Knowing when to start is key to a well-rounded retirement strategy.
Should My Risk Tolerance Be Based Solely on My Personality?Often, when we talk about risk tolerance in saving for retirement, our minds turn to a personality trait. “Would you jump out of a plane? Well, then you might be up for high-risk retirement investments.” It’s not that simple.
Saving with an IRA or qualified retirement plan is part of a well-rounded, well-researched retirement strategy. Investments, Social Security, insurance, savings, and tax minimization are some other features you can add to make your retirement even more comfortable.
