What Are Your Lifetime Income Goals? Retire Fast. Try Bob's Free Retirement Calculator Today.
Everyone has different lifetime income goals. For some, the goal is simply to know that they will be able to afford to pay for general expenses and to have money set aside so that, in the event that they need medical care, they will not run the risk of becoming a burden to family members. For others, lifetime income goals include having the money to travel or to move into a home that will give them access to an active retirement community where they will be able to make new friends who share their interests.
Regardless of whether your lifetime income goals are well defined, regardless of whether or not your lifetime income goals fit into one of the above categories or they are outside of them, one thing is going to remain absolutely true: in order to achieve your lifetime income goals, you are going to need to make an effort to plan ahead and to understand your savings accounts and investments and how they will perform for you.
How can you be sure that the savings accounts that you have and that the investments that you have made will help you to reach your lifetime income goals? One thing that you will be able to do is to download the free retirement calculator at the bottom of this page.
With the free retirement calculator, you will be able to enter simple information about the savings accounts that you have - whether they are traditional savings accounts, individual retirement accounts or even certificates of deposit. Once you have entered some basic information, you will be able to look at the ways in which your savings will accrue to help you to reach your lifetime income goals while accounting for changing interest rates as well as inflation.
Likewise, you will be able to use the retirement calculator to stay on top of your investments and whether or not individual stocks and mutual fund shares as well as your complete investment portfolio are working to help you achieve your lifetime income goals. You will be able to take a closer look at how each has performed in the past and to see how each of your investments is projected to perform over the next twenty five years.
All of the information that you will find will contribute to the big picture of whether or not you will be able to reach your lifetime income goals; a conversation with a financial advisor can serve to bring that picture into focus. That's why, when you download the free retirement calculator your contact information will be forwarded to a financial advisor in your area who can help to answer your questions, talk about your lifetime income goals, and make recommendations for better ways of reaching those goals.
There is no reason why you cannot reach your retirement income goals, especially if you have an understanding of your accounts and investments and how they work together. With the free retirement calculator and access to a financial advisor, that understanding is yours or the taking.
