For most of your life, retirement seems like something in the very distant future, but it’s surprising how quickly it arrives. The goal of retirement is to maintain your financial independence and continue to live the same comfortable life as when you were earning a paycheck.
Retirement planning means defining what your ideal life will look like when you decide to no longer work. Then, the goal is to create a plan that will get you to this ideal. This means understanding predictable retirement savings, planning for your financial goals, and even creating peace of mind with a living will.
One of the biggest retirement worries can be all of the unknowns. Your retirement years can be a lot more predictable when you plan for a senior living community.
A large part of retirement planning is strictly financial. These goals are crucial to achieving the life you want. Follow these 12 tips for retirement to be best prepared:
Retirement planning isn’t all about the numbers. Another key factor is creating peace of mind as you move forward with your retired life goals. This means getting together with your lawyer and creating a living will for your future.
A living will is a document that explains if you want to stay on life support should you become terminally ill or fall into a persistent vegetative state. It also details your preference for pain medications, tube feeding and more. This only becomes effective when you cannot communicate your own wishes. It is also known as an advance directive or a health care directive.
