Planning for retirement can be a daunting process for many Americans, but not because they dread the thought of no longer working. It’s because they fear not having enough money to live comfortably in their senior years. That’s why every year; we recognize National Retirement Planning Week to focus on raising awareness about the importance of saving for retirement. This is an opportunity to reflect upon your life’s journey, review your retirement savings plan and determine if you are on the right track. Whether you are young or old, single, parent or grandparent, we all have a responsibility to prepare for our retirement years.
However, preparing for retirement doesn’t happen on its own, you have to actively take steps. If you start planning for your retirement early, you will learn that shaping your financial journey to retirement isn’t as difficult as it may seem. And if you are late in your planning, there are steps that you can take to help you get on the right track. No matter where you are in your journey, Foresters Financial Representatives have a variety of resources to help you develop your retirement plan.
