Retirement Planning Tips

Finally, review these tips for retirement to be on your way!

  • Start investing a certain percentage of your income every year. Increase the amount until you hit 15%.
  • Don’t remove money from your retirement funds.
  • Compound interest works especially hard the longer you invest. Don’t wait too long to invest or get too side tracked trying to pay for your kid’s college education.
  • Contribute to your employer’s 401(k) plan at least enough to max out the employer contribution.
  • Change your investment risk throughout the years- more risky and aggressive while young to very safe and stable near retirement.
  • Check in with a professional for some financial counseling to ensure you are on track.
