Read on to learn more about what you can expect to discuss during a free consultation with one of our financial advisors.
Evaluate Your Situation
As the first step in paving your financial future, you’ll need to evaluate your current situation. You can’t start saving for retirement plans if you’re still checking between the couch cushions for pizza money. Evaluating your financial situation in order to save for retirement plans entails a handful of things. You’ll want to take stock of your current assets. This is a quick but important step.
You’ll also want to assess your potential Social Security retirement benefits. This will require some honest estimations of your wages and where you see yourself in the coming years. One of the benefits of trusting Longschaefer’s financial planning services is that we help you consider a variety of situations. Over the years, we’ve learned that preparedness and an ability to anticipate potential outcomes can really help you in the long-run.
Considering retirement plans will also require that you determine what your living costs will be at the time of your retirement. Having some idea of what you will need to have saved away in order to comfortably accommodate your lifestyle is important. While you can find tools online to help you come up with this figure, consider visiting with a LongSchaefer financial advisor in one of our free consultations. We offer a level of experience and skill that you won’t find with an online calculator.
Choose a Plan
There are a variety of individual retirement plans available, which span from Traditional IRAs to employer-sponsored individual plans. Deciding what best suits your situation is another step which requires a lot of informed foresight. You’ll want a plan that ensures you’re able to live comfortably as you contribute, while also ensuring that you’ll be able to live comfortably in retirement. Longschaefer advises that you seek the help of a trained and educated financial advisor to figure out what kind of retirement plans will allow you to live the lifestyle you’ve earned.
