What Is Your Financial Plan for Retirement?

As you plan for retirement, have you thought about:

1. Your assets (how much you get paid, what’s in your savings and checking accounts

2.  How much is in your retirement fund.

3.  What about your liabilities (including loans, credit cards, and other personal debts.

4.  Don’t forget your mortgage or rent

5.  Remember to include your utility bills and any other monthly expenses (all insurance policies).

These are jus a few of the things you need to consider.

What are your goals are and what do you need to do to get there? Here are some things to consider before you go into retirement:

  • Set your financial goals 
  • Focus on your health and family
  • Review your Retirement Savings Plans 
  • If you have investments, review and rebalance your portfolio 
  • Address your estate and future tax planning (you should have a revocable living trust and an executive directive)
  • Do you have a financial emergency plan 
  • Look ahead to future savings (you don’t want to run out of money) 
  • Develop an alternative income stream. Find something you like to do and figure out how to make money doing it.

Entering into retirement is no joke. You must have an annual financial plan for your peace of mind for today and all of those tomorrows. Check off all the items above and those on your bucket list of wishes. If you have not it’s time to pencil in time. No one is promised tomorrow.
