Retirement Income Summit: What Should You Be Looking for?
Do you sometimes wish that there was a retirement income summit that you could attend ? a place where you could go - along with other people who have similar financial planning goals - to learn more about securing the retirement income that you're going to need to have once you no longer have a steady paycheck coming in? At a retirement income summit, you could talk about your financial goals and about your investment strategies and to get feedback and advice.
Some of what you would learn in a retirement income summit you would learn from others in the group. From them, you could learn about investments that are likely to pay off and about stocks that you have already invested in that you should look at getting rid of ? quickly ? before you lose money with them.
Instead of spending your time looking for a retirement income summit where you could learn from others and from presenters, you could spend the time researching your own savings and investments. Instead of spending your time looking into retirement income summits and traveling to where they will be held, you could spend your time looking at your own financial planning strategy.
That is to say, rather than focusing on finding a retirement income summit to attend, maybe you should focus on your own retirement plan. Rather than learning from others who are, more or less, trying to figure out their own investment strategy and savings goals, maybe you should look for a way of getting the information that you actually need to make your retirement planning successful.
One way of getting that information is as simple as accessing Bob's free retirement calculator from the bottom of this page.
With it, you can study the ways that your savings and investment accounts have performed over time. You'll also be able to get projections for how your savings accounts and the stocks, bonds and mutual funds that you've invested in will perform over the next twenty five years so that you will be able to develop a stronger sense of whether or not you are headed in the right direction.
You'll also be able to see the ways in which changes will affect your retirement income. These changes may be out of your control ? changes such as inflation or fluctuating interest rates - or they may be changes that you make such as making a withdrawal from your retirement savings to pay medical expenses, college tuition or to put a down payment on a new home. Either way changes that you are thinking about making should be looked at carefully to see how they will affect your financial future.
After you've had a chance to look at what you have and at the changes that you?re thinking of making, you?ll have another great opportunity to take your retirement planning to the next level - an opportunity that won't come at a retirement income summit: you'll be able to discuss your strategies during a free follow up phone call from a financial advisor.
While you may be able to get some valuable information during a retirement income summit, why not take more control and develop a better understanding of your situation?
