Planning for Your Retirement


 
Insurance

When you think of retiring, what do you imagine? Cruise ships? Margaritas? Reading a book by the pool? While this might be your dream, there is a lot of hard work that goes into that dream. Years of careers, education, and paychecks have all helped to prepare you for that amazing time of endless vacations. By planning for the future early on, you can enjoy retirement and peace of mind. From starting a retirement fund early on to investing in life insurance in Greenville, SC, here are just a few things you can do to start planning for your retirement now:

  1. Start saving and keep saving. Setting money aside each month is a great way to build up a nest egg. However, it’s even more important not to spend what you save. While you might be tempted to buy a new car or go on vacations, think ahead to the future instead. It’s important to set a goal for your retirement savings and stick to it. You deserve to enjoy your retirement.
  2. Know what retirement costs. It’s not cheap to stop working. In fact, it’s estimated that you will need at least 70 percent of your last salary to live on after you retire. Plus, that’s just on the low end. If you want to maintain the same quality of life that you enjoyed before retirement, you will need at least 90 percent of your last salary. By understanding early on what it costs to retire, you will be able to adequately set and keep your saving goals.
  3. Contribute to your employer's plans. More than likely, your employer offers some sort of retirement savings plan. If they do have a 401(k) plan, sign up and then contribute all that you can afford. Some employers will match your contributions up to a certain amount. This is pretty much free money. Plus, these contributions will accrue interest and increase in the amount.
  4. Leave your retirement fund alone. You might be tempted to withdraw money from your retirement account in order to fund the down payment on your new house. However, don’t do it. Withdrawing from your account can start a chain of bad habits of dipping in to your fund. Plus, you could be facing withdrawal penalties or extra taxes. You could also miss out on interest that you could be accruing had you left the money alone.
  5. Start an IRA. This specific type of Individual Retirement Account has specific tax incentives that can help you. You are able to contribute up to $5,500 a year. That limit will increase as soon as you turn 50. It’s a great way for you to save easily and can be automatically deducted from your bank account as you see fit.
  6. Be informed about social security. Once you hit a specific age, you will become eligible for social security. This means that you will receive 40% of what you earned before you retired. While this can definitely help towards your retirement, it shouldn’t be your only option.
  7. Invest in life insurance. Life insurance might not seem like it will help with your retirement plan, but it can allow your family to continue living their lifestyle even after you pass away. By thinking ahead, you will prepare yourself for any possible outcome.

Planning for your future doesn’t need to be scary or difficult. In fact, with the right information, it can be easy. From setting up a 401(k) to getting life insurance in Greenville, SC, start thinking about your future now. With the right preparation, your future will be well thought out and enjoyed once your time comes to retire.
