Has Your Retirement Been Reduced To A Senior Pixel?
Do you know what a pixel is? When it comes to technology, a pixel is an individual dot that makes up an image - your computer screen has them and many televisions do too. By itself, a pixel will not give you much of an idea of what you're looking at.
A senior pixel, then, would be one small dot of the picture you have for when you are older. Each senior pixel is a component of your future life.
One senior pixel might represent travel. Another senior pixel might represent a comfortable home. Another might be the ability to help pay for your grandchildren's education.
But all of those senior pixels add up to build one full image of your retirement: The retirement that you've always dreamed of having. The key to having that retirement is to plan well - to plan for each part of your retirement, each senior pixel.
If you view each senior pixel as an individual retirement goal, it will be easier to plan for your retirement. After all, once you identify and set a goal, it is easier to achieve it.
But once you have all of your retirement goals, how can you make sure that you are able to reach them? One way is careful planning. Another is a clear understanding of the way your savings and investments will work for you.
One thing that you can do to ensure that you have a clear understanding of your savings as well as the stocks, bonds and mutual funds you've invested in is to download our free retirement calculator by clicking the red button at the bottom of the page.
With this calculator you'll be able to evaluate the ways in which your investments have performed over time. That way, you can determine which investments may not be helping you to reach your goals. You can then examine them further by using the retirement calculator to get projections for how your stocks, bonds and mutual funds are expected to perform over the next 25 years - another way to see which of your investments are not working well for you. Those projections are also important because they take into consideration the ways that changing interest rates and inflation will affect the income you'll have available when you retire.
By understanding the ways in which your savings and investments have and will perform over time, you will be in a better position to make changes to your investment strategy. Not only will you be able to know which investments you should change when you study your portfolio with our retirement calculator, but you'll also be able to explore - without the risk of making an even worse financial decision - the changes that you're planning to make.
You'll be able to evaluate which investments will perform better for you than those that you have as well as be able to determine which won't. But because we want you to be sure that you're making the right decisions, we've arranged for everyone who downloads our free retirement calculator to have a free one-on-one consultation with a financial advisor.
You'll be able to get answers to the questions that you still have, and advice about the best ways to move forward and bring each of your senior pixels together to focus in on your retirement dream.
Take the time to make sure that your retirement is all that you hope it will be. Look into all of your options and make sure that each component of your retirement picture works with the others to create the big picture that you really want to see.
With our free retirement calculator, you'll be able to achieve all of your retirement goals. See how easy it is to plan for the future you've always dreamed of: Click the red button to get started.
