For some people, this is their future. A dream of good fortune based on chance. A sense of security, built on assumptions. For some people, this is what retirement looks like. So after raising a family and sharing memorable moments in their homes, people could cash in to fund their retirement. It seems forty-nine percent of folks plan to do just that.
But, what if it’s not enough? Or the moment they say “I’m retired” coincides with the exact instant the market bubble bursts. What next? Others are banking on inheriting money from loved ones. Forty percent of people see this as their golden ticket but what if that windfall is too small to survive on, or disappears before it even comes their way? Then there are those who, after a lifetime of working, are prepared to collect their government pensions, only to find out they’ll get a fraction of what they were counting on. Believe it or not, eighty-seven percent of people are in this boat, not realizing this is meant to be a supplement to their retirement savings. And who doesn’t dream of winning the lottery?
Future At Risk
The truth is, the odds are like, three million to one to hit the jackpot Surprised? That doesn’t stop thirty-four percent of people from relying on a big win to retire on. So the question is whether your future is at risk. Until now, saving money has come in the form of “buy one, get one free” deals. It’s been hard to save for the future while covering day-to-day expenses, student loans, mortgage payments and bills.
With retirement so far in the future, it’s kind of “out of sight, out of mind”. But, on the off chance you consider the future, between credit card swipes, how do you figure out how much money you’ll need? Or, how long it will take to hit your target? People are terrified they won’t have enough to live off; to the point, they’re banking on their kids to cover their needs when they run out of money. Not you, right? So be ready, and not worried, now’s the time to prepare for your future. A future that’s secure, with a DB pension.
