Retirement planning

Planning for retirement doesn't have to be complicated. But it does require making a commitment to your plan. Begin with the basics.

1. Take inventory of projected income. Have you reviewed what your retirement income might look like? Consider all sources: Social Security, pension, annuities, IRAs and other assets. If you need help, talk to a Modern Woodmen representative. Your workplace’s Human Resources Department and the Social Security Administration website (ssa.gov) can also be good sources of information.

2. Calculate how much income you will need in retirement.

3. Create a spending plan (budget) that lists ongoing, monthly expenses.

4. Review health insurance options.

5. Make sure legal paperwork is in order. This includes wills, health care powers of attorney, trusts, and/or other ownership arrangements for assets and considering lifetime transfers of assets.

6. Have adequate life insurance to complete your estate plan and provide for a surviving spouse and/or other dependents.

Getting ready to retire? You face many risks, including increasing health care costs, the impact of inflation and market volatility. If you are like most, you feel the future of Social Security is uncertain and your employer most likely doesn’t offer a pension. The result? The largest risk you may face is the risk you will outlive your retirement savings.
