Most Americans say one of their biggest financial fears is not having enough money for retirement. Yet fewer than half actually make any plans to set aside funds for this very important time of life. Retirement is a phase of life we all look forward to. But for most people, retirement planning brings more questions than answers.
- When should I start planning?
- How much will I need for retirement?
- Am I saving enough?
- What questions should I be asking?
- How can I best manage my assets to secure my retirement?
While Social Security is still considered the primary source of retirement income, it is no longer enough to depend solely on Social Security. Personal savings from another type of retirement plan are essential to retirement security. Like building your legacy, planning for your retirement is a lifelong process. The earlier you start, the more prepared you will be when the big day finally arrives.
