The saddest fact in today’s world is that the larger percentage of society can never afford to retire, yet at the same time they cannot work at the same pace they once used to. Finding a job after 50 becomes increasingly more difficult as companies want the young blood and energy to drive a bottom line. In the past, retirement planning was seen for some as something for the rich, for others as not important or not for now. Others believed that because they had contributions monthly toward company pension funds they would be fine. Others thought that they could barely afford to live on what they earned, so what was the point in attempting to save for retirement.
Retirement planning is for everyone and needs to start on the first day of the first job. The younger the planning starts the sooner the cycle of older generations not being able to retire stops. Even if it is just a little, it will help. Think of one lit candle in the dark – it still provides some light.
Effective retirement planning will help the individual maximise their tax breaks every year as well as ensure a fruitful retirement that can be enjoyed.
Once retirement age hits, the retirement planning becomes even more interesting and fun as we need to look into capital preservation whilst providing an income of which one can live off whilst still providing for unseen costs that will come with age.
