We all have financial responsibilities that can become a balancing act. Some that are significant to us while others aren’t. With competing financial obligations, there never seems to be enough money to go around and retirement becomes the least of our worries. A recent survey reveals 64% of Americans aren’t prepared for retirement and 48% simply don’t care.
Retirement is an inevitable phase of life. It marks the end of our hardworking careers where our devoted time will soon be replaced by trips, new hobbies, and spending more time with family. If you don’t prepare yourself financially, retirement may not be the enjoyable phase in life that you’ve envisioned it to be.
To ensure you’re prepared for retirement, there’s one simple thing you can do every year to give your savings a checkup. Just like health checkups, examining your financial life can be just as normal and important. It’ll allow you to:
- Be financially aware of where you currently stand versus where you want to be.
- Be in control of the many life changes such as having a child, purchasing a home, or dealing with a change in income because of a new job.
- Be involved and invested in important decisions that’ll affect the current and future lifestyle for you and your family.
