When you plan for your future, it's important to set goals. Among the goals that you should set are goals for your retirement target funds. It's important to know how much money you need to have when you retire.

When you attach a value to your retirement target funds, you'll be better able to achieve your goals. You will be able to look more closely at your investments so that you can see how to reach that goal in the most effective way possible.

How do you know how much money you'll need when you retire? Well, in part, that will depend on changes to the costs of living- gasoline, home heating, housing, groceries, and more, have all been associated with growing costs over the years. It will also depend on what you plan to do with your retirement: Do you want to be able to travel to exotic places? Do you want to be able to help finance your children's homes or grandchildren's educations?

All of the things that you intend to do with your retirement affect the value reflected in your retirement target funds. Your financial goals should allow you to meet your financial obligations, enjoy the lifestyle that you hope to have and allow you additional funds to cover unexpected expenses - moving to a single-story home or medical costs.

Once you've determined the amount of money that you need to reach the level of your retirement target funds, you need to figure out how to go about reaching that target. There are nearly as many investment plans as there are people: Everyone has a different level of risk that they are comfortable taking; everyone believes that one type of investment might be better than others, at least for them; everyone has a different amount of time in which to reach their financial retirement target.

But even though you have your own comfort level when it comes to investing, even though you may prefer investing in mutual funds to investing in stocks, and even though you have set your own deadline for accumulating money for your retirement, there are similarities to everyone's investment plan.

There are things that everyone who invests needs to know. When we built Bob's free retirement calculator to help people analyze their financial plans, we took these things into consideration.

With Bob's free retirement calculator, you can determine:

  • How the stocks, bonds and mutual funds you've invested in have performed over time;
  • How those investments are projected to perform in the future;
  • Ways in which savings and investments will be affected by interest and inflation rates;
  • How changes to your investment strategy will affect the way your savings grows;
  • How your retirement savings will be affected if you need to make a withdrawal from them before you retire.

And after you've had the chance to use Bob's free retirement calculator, you'll have the opportunity to talk with a financial advisor during a free consultation.

You can use that time to ask questions and get answers. You can use the time to discuss your retirement target funds and how to make investments that will allow you to reach them - possibly even to surpass those goals. And during that consultation you can form a plan and determine how to put it into action.

Rather than not reaching your retirement goals, why not take a few minutes to evaluate your savings. Build the best plan that you can to get to where you want to be. Just click the blue button below to access Bob's free retirement calculator and get started.
