After years of living the “rat race”, you are looking forward to the day when you can start living on your own schedule. Being a good employee is important, but eventually you will arrive at the day when you are the boss. But do you have enough assets to enjoy your preferred lifestyle? When considering a proper retirement plan it is critical to think about the three phases of retirement planning.
A good retirement plan starts on your first day in the working world. This is the accumulation phase. The earlier you can start saving, the more your money will have a chance to compound throughout the years. However, most young people don’t have huge incomes, so this is a challenge.
Ironically, you make the most amount of money just before you retire, so there is less of a chance for it to have time to compound. But don’t let this discourage you.
At this point, you will be concerned with income and wealth preservation. Growth will take a backseat so you can focus on paying the bills with the proceeds from your nest egg.
With careful planning, you can make sure your money outlasts you.
