Wauchula State Bank’s Life Stages Planning
Transform your financial habits to prepare for the future
Your 50s are a good time to take stock of your assets and evaluate your position relative to your retirement plans. For an accurate estimate, consider at what age you would like to retire and the lifestyle you plan to have… will you travel, have a vacation home, take up an expensive hobby? Project a budget, keeping in mind that some costs, such as health insurance, may increase and others, like your mortgage payment, may disappear. Once you have estimated your living expenses, then estimate how much your assets will be worth at retirement, and how long they are likely to last. You can do this with Wauchula State Bank’s retirement calculator. You’ll also need to estimate your Social Security income. With all this information at hand, you may want to increase your retirement contributions.
As you enter your 60s, fine-tune your projections and your asset allocations. If you retire before age 65, be sure you have medical insurance to cover you until you are eligible for Medicare.
Wauchula State Bank can help walk you through all these factors as you look to your future retirement. Let our experienced Financial Advisors assist you with more detailed information.
