Get Fiscally Fit: Retirement Time. Make the most of your remaining paychecks to save for retirement...
April 14, 2013
If you’re beginning to consider retirement, you should be seriously thinking about how to ensure that your financial life in those golden years will be as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Need a little guidance?
Make the most of your remaining paychecks to save for retirement.
How much money you’ll need to set aside for retirement (which for many people could last 30 years or more) will depend on a variety of factors.Among them:
- When do you expect to quit working?
- Will you continue to earn some income part-time?
- How much money do you have in savings and pensions?
- And, what kinds of expenses will you incur for housing and health care?
Because the future is uncertain, it makes sense, while you’re still working, to put as much money as possible — 10 to 20% of your annual income, if not more — into savings for your golden years. Also make use of employer-sponsored retirement plans (especially if you’ll receive matching contributions) and tax-advantaged Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).
Try to reduce or eliminate debt.
“Another way to save more money now for a more enjoyable retirement later is to cut back on unnecessary expenses,” especially if you will need to go into debt to pay for them, said Luke W. Reynolds, Chief of the FDIC’s Community Affairs Outreach Section. He said to try to pay off most or all of your credit card balances and other loans to cut down on interest charges and avoid being burdened with repayment during your retirement years.
Develop a plan to stretch your money through a long retirement.
“The idea is to determine where your money will come from during retirement, so you won’t have to live in fear of running out of money,” said Susan Boenau, Chief of the FDIC’s Consumer Affairs Section.
For example, consult with the Social Security Administration or your accountant to learn how much Social Security and pension income you’d get each month if you “retire early” at 62 or after, and how much more you would receive if you hold off on retirement. The penalty for starting to collect Social Security payments early can be substantial.
