Plan for Retirement

I Think it’s Time to Start Planning for Retirement. Where Do I Begin?

ASK A FINANCIAL PLANNER

To get started, you’ll need to set lifestyle goals for your retirement. At what age do you see yourself retiring, and what would you like to do? You’ll need to account for basic living expenses (food, utilities, transportation, etc.), the cost of a mortgage you may still be paying off, or the cost of funding your child’s education, which may happen well into retirement. Finally, be realistic about how many years of retirement you’ll have to fund. With people living longer, your retirement could span 30 years or more.

Next, project your annual retirement income and see if that income will be enough to meet your expenses. Common sources of income you may have during retirement are Social Security benefits, pension payments, distributions from retirement plans (e.g., IRAs and 401(k)s) and dividends and interest from investments.
