Every retirement plan is unique. After all, you may have very specific ideas on how you want to spend your retired life. This is why it’s important to have a plan that is designed specifically to suit your individual needs.
WHY IS RETIREMENT PLANNING IMPORTANT?
Retirement Planning is vital because it helps us to answer questions like these;
- What will retirement look like for me?
- Are we spending too much?
- What if we’re not saving enough?
- How often should we be saving?
- Could we run out of money in retirement?
- Are we investing in the right places?
- How much will we need in retirement?
- Will Government and Employer pension plans cover us through retirement?
Retirement planning helps individuals avoid running out of money in retirement. A retirement plan allows retirees to be financially independent, live comfortable lives, and achieve retirement goals. Retirement planning helps with things like building retirement assets, fighting inflation, medical emergencies, transitioning smoothly into retirement, safeguarding property and other assets and just making smart decisions in general.
