The Early Bird…… The Importance Of Retirement Planning
We all dream of a stress-free easy living retirement, whether it’s the sensation of being able to do what you want without financial worries, or laying back on a sunny beach abroad, the beauty of retirement is that it really is ours to make our own.
Whilst some of us may dream of retiring before we start to go grey, like anything in life, planning and preparation for your retirement is essential.
Retirement should be a time where you can kick back, enjoy life and spend time with your family, all without the worry of where that next payslip is going to come from.
Have You Thought About Your Retirement?
The thought of retirement isn’t just for those breaching the larger digits either.
Whether you’re just starting out in the big wide world of work, are a senior and established ‘ball player’ or would rather not mention your age, the earlier you begin to plan for your retirement, the more benefits you can reap.
Many people begin to plan their ‘bucket list’ early, with adventures and places they want to explore in their retirement.
These are more than attainable with a little investment, planning and discipline on your part as well as the trusty aid of a reputable and established financial planning firm.

But Why Should I Plan For Retirement?
Planning for retirement ensures that you can afford to lead the lifestyle you wish once you have stopped working.

By planning early, you can begin to not only save but be rewarded by long term interest.
Earlier The Better – When Should I Start Saving?
The sooner the better if you have begun employment, nothing should be stopping you putting that extra bit of cash away for those years to come.
In fact, your place of work may even have a workplace pension in place so always investigate and see how a workplace pension can benefit you.
By investing early on your pension, you are only enhancing the chances of saving for the retirement you deserve.
More importantly, should you opt for early retirement voluntarily or experience health issues in the future, then you can be safe in the knowledge that your finances have had time to grow for you and your family
Great – How Much Should I Start Saving?
This isn’t a question that has a definitive answer.
This comes down to what you can afford to save, your annual income and your retirement plans themselves.
By sitting down with a specialist retirement planning advisor, you can begin to outline the figures and goals for your retirement plans.
What is important to remember is that your retirement fund is a long term investment, it takes time to grow and nurture for you to really reap the benefits.
So start early and watch your savings grow as the years go by and the prospect of retirement edges closer.
Your retirement is what you make it and unfortunately, we live in a world that revolves around money, investments and savings.
So whether your retirement is years or decades away, planning early for those retirement ventures should be one of the first thoughts on your mind when you open your pay slip.
Whilst early planning doesn’t solidify an early retirement, it does ensure a better, more fruitful retirement.
