"Retiring Without Becoming a Burden"
Retiring Without Becoming a Burden Entering into your golden years is supposed to be a great time. Not only do you qualify for the senior citizen discount at the local movie theater, you also have the option of retiring and spending your days fulfilling all the “when I retire” ideas that you had throughout your life. This sounds pretty good, right? It is, so long as you do not become a burden when you retire. In order to help you avoid that problem, take a look at some of the ideas contained in the following paragraphs: Prepare Early Having a well planned retirement is essential if one does not wish to become a burden. A key part of this planning is to start preparing for your retirement early, rather than just deciding “I think I will retire” a month or two before you do so. A good way to begin is by meeting with an estate or financial planner in order to figure out what your current standing is, and what you’ll need to retire in the manner that you desire. Diversify Traditional wisdom is to invest more conservatively as you get closer to or enter retirement. This is the safe bet but give some thought to taking a different path. Instead, diversify your investments by putting half of your portfolio into conservative investments, and the other half into more risky investments with potentially greater yield. The conservative investments will serve to maintain your existing financial status, while the riskier investments serve to increase your financial status.
