Perhaps your retirement is imminent or is a long way off. It would be
nice to think of way that you could earn extra income in retirement.
Some people's retirement could last more than 20 years. Now, more than
ever, it is very important to have your money working for you.

Before you retire, it may b e a good thing to ask yourself just how much
money you will need to live on. Some things may change when you retire.
You will probably save big time on the cost it takes you to travel back
and forth to work, but you may spend more on anotheritem such as heating.
You also have to take into consideration the effects of inflation. If you
have an online budget calculator, it may be very easy to figure all of
this out. If you find yourslef coming up on the short end of the stick,
where are you going to get that extra income in retirement?

One very simple way to get that extra income in retirement is to get a
parttime job. Nowadays the work foce is composed of more and more older
people. You will find that a parttime job not only makes you feel useful
and productive but will supplement your retirement income very nicely.

Are you a member of a pension plan at work? If so, then your employer
should be able to tell you exactly what you will earn when you retire.
Some pension plans will pay you based on your earning while you were
working at that company. Still other pension plans build up a pension
fund that can be used to purchase an annuity. If you have a personal
pension, then your company should tell you how much you have built up in
it. Sometimes you can take some of this money as a lump sum and the rest
must be used to purchase an annuity. Perhaps you have old pension into
which you are not paying into anymore. You can find out what you can
expect to get from those. Remember, every little bit helps!

There are also other sources of extra income in retirement that you
should be aware of. You should check to see if you will be entitled to
any tax credits or state benefits. You should also jog your memory and
see whether you have any investments or savings that you can put towards
your impending retirement. If you happen to own your own home, you may
be able to use some of the money that is tied up in your house to give
you some supplemental icome. This can be risky, however, so be sure to
seek some professional adivce about this matter first.

No matter if it be getting a parttime job, pension plans, getting an
annuity or relying on investments and stocks to give you extra income in
retirement you should map out your retirement strategies early enough so
you will not be caught in the lurch! With a little foresight, you will
not have to worry about the future.
