Regardless of your personal circumstances, everyone should have a retirement plan in place. If you are an adult who doesn’t have a plan, beginning the planning process as soon as possible is absolutely essential.
Retirement Planning Steps
There is no one right or wrong way to go about the retirement planning process. Whether you plan on using an IRA, 401(k), or any other retirement planning tool, determining the right tool to use is something will require careful consideration.
- Step 1: Determine your starting point. Everyone has a financial starting point when it comes to retirement planning. Whether you have a lot of money saved, have a lot of debt, or are between jobs, you have to know what you’re starting with in order to have an idea where you can go in the future.
- Step 2: Create relationships. Our lives don’t exist in vacuums, and neither will your retirementplan. When you create a plan you will have to create various relationships with others upon whom you will rely in the future. Whether you currently have these relationships or need to create them, your plan will identify who you need and make sure you have the right people working for you.
- Step 3: Predict and Choose. A big part of retirement planning is identifying what you will need in the future. Predictions can’t be perfect, but you need to have a good idea of what the future might hold before you can make choices about what you want to do. Once you have identified what you will likely have, you can then begin setting goals and creating retirement planning tools that will help you accomplish them.
