My Plan Retire
How Much Thought Have You Put Into Your Retirement Plan?
The last time someone asked you about retirement, what was your reply? Were you able to give them a list of the things that you hoped to accomplish? Or did you just look at them blankly and say 'My Plan? Retire.'
If 'My Plan? Retire' was your answer, hopefully it was only because you have not thought of how you want to spend your time. You do not know whether or not you will want to spend the time once you are no longer working full time traveling the world. You do not know whether you will want to perfect your game of golf or just have the time that you need to spend with your family. You do not even know whether you want to stay in the home that you are in or to move to an active adult community - a place where you can spend your time building friendships and involved in activities with others who are in the same place in life that you are.
But even if your plan is just to retire and you do not yet know what else you intend to do, it is neither too early nor too late to begin planning for the financial security of your retirement. Whether you have been saving for a long while or you are just beginning to save and invest, you need to know what your financial picture will look like.
One way that you can take control over your retirement income is to click on the red button at the bottom of this page to download the free retirement calculator. With it, you will be able to look at your current savings and investments.
You will be able to see how your savings accounts - whether they are employer-sponsored 401k or 403b accounts, annuity accounts, Individual Retirement Accounts or even certificates of deposit - have performed over time. You will be able to look at the stocks, bonds and mutual funds that you have invested in a similar way.
And, you will be able to look out how your investments are projected to perform in the future - over the next twenty five years - even after the effects of changing interest rates and the rising costs associated with inflation. More importantly - whether you like what you see or you notice that there is room for improvement - you will be able to look at the ways in which those investments that you are thinking about making are projected to perform.
When you are able to see for yourself the income that will be available to you once you retire, you may find yourself closer to being able to figure out your plan. But no matter what you decide the to make a part of your retirement plan, you will be able to know that you have the money that you need to reach your goals.
Not only will you know that from using the retirement calculator, but also you will be able to get reassurance from a retirement counselor. When you download the free retirement calculator, you will also receive a free consultation with a financial advisor.
