Retirement Planning In Your Golden Years

Retirement Planning in Your Golden Years

In your golden years, retirement planning becomes even more important. While it's true that you are never too young or too old to focus on retirement planning, in your golden years it becomes even more important to know that your savings accounts and investments are working for you.

In your golden years, retirement planning is no longer about looking at where you can save, which stocks you should invest in and planning for something that is a long ways away; retirement planning in the golden years is suddenly all about looking five to ten years into the future and finding the confidence that you will be able to make ends meet and reach your goals once you no longer have a steady paycheck coming in.

When it comes to retirement planning in the golden years, there are some things that are essential:

  1. You need to be sure that you have developed a sense of what you want to be able to do during your retirement; if you are looking at moving into an active adult community rather than staying in your home, you will find that you need to do more for planning for retirement than someone who just wants to have a low key retirement, traveling once in a while but mostly staying close to home and enjoying time with the family;

  2. You need to be able to develop a strong sense of how your savings accounts and investments have performed over time;

  3. You need to be able to look at the value of your savings after both changing interest rates and the effects of inflation have been taken into consideration so that you know how much savings you actually have; and,

  4. You need to look at projections for you investments so that you will be able to determine whether or not the level of risk that you're taking is comfortable. After all, while you may have been willing to take more risks while you were younger, high risk investments become more of an issue once you are nearing retirement.
