It’s Never Too Early to Plan for Retirement

I will be 65 in August.  I am reminded of this almost daily by all of the direct mail pieces I receive urging me to sign up for Medicare supplemental benefits.  I have reached the point in my life and career where it is time to think about retirement — even though I think of myself as young and vibrant and plan on continuing to work for several more years.

Many years ago, I got two great pieces of financial planning advice — 1) never spend more than you make and 2) make sure you save for retirement.  I took that advice to heart and am in a good place financially as I near retirement. 

Unfortunately, as this article points out, a lot of people don’t feel the need to save for retirement until it’s too late.

This post is a little off topic for a career success blog, but I think it is important.  Putting yourself on sound financial footing will make it easier for you to take that big step into retirement when the time comes.
