Millions of people are getting ready to retire but unfortunately most people do not have enough money to retire comfortably. To help solve this problem, here are three questions people should ask before they retire:
1. How much money do I need at retirement to generate the income I need?
Most people need to produce an income after they retire. [Generally, savings produces income after retirement, not people.] The problem is that most people do not think about how much money they need to produce a healthy income – after they stop working. I spoke to Guy Baker, PhD, MBA, MSFS, Founder & Managing Director of Wealth Teams Alliance in Irvine, California, and he gave me his three step formula that people can use to retire comfortably: “learn to budget, save, and invest.” He told me that people who do these three simple things are way ahead of the game.
2. How much do I need to save to reach that objective?
Once you determine your number while you are still working, the next step is to ask yourself, now while you are still working, how much money do I need to save in order prepare a savings plan to reach that objective? Remember, the earlier you start saving, the better off you are.
3. How do I efficiently invest to give the highest probability of achieving my retirement objective with the lowest possible risk?
The third important question will help you focus on investing – and growing – your money. The reason why you want to start early is to put the law of compounding returns to work for you.
