Retirement may seem a long way off but are you saving enough now for a comfortable future? A general rule of thumb suggests that you should aim for a retirement income of two-thirds of the amount you would expect to be earning at the end of your career. It can be hard to plan for tomorrow in a fast changing economic climate when you’re focused on living for today. If you begin planning and saving now you will have many more options in the future.
You’ll be surprised at the big difference it can make to your savings if you start saving early. This is because of ‘compounding’. Compounding is a simple concept. When you invest money you earn interest or income on your capital. Then next year you earn on both your original capital and the interest from the first year, and so on. It’s the snowball effect – as your capital ‘rolls down the hill’, it becomes bigger and bigger. The earlier you start investing, the more time you have for compounding to take effect.
With the state pension and some private pensions falling short in terms of what they provide in retirement, can you rely on these alone to provide sufficient income? The decline in the state pension over recent decades and the diminution of the final salary scheme sector have left millions to fend for themselves in their retirement provision, though many will still enjoy some contributory support from their employer.
The value of pensions and investments, and the income they produce, can fall as well as rise.
You may get back less than you invested.
The closer you get to retirement, the greater the need to preserve your savings and ensure they will last throughout your retirement. This is also a time to consider what changes you may need to make to your investments as you approach retirement. People are living longer, so you’ll need to make sure your money lasts as long as you do. It’s also crucial to make the right investment decisions now to ensure that over time your money will keep pace with the threat of rising inflation. Ensure your pension plans are on track.
Over the past few years many forms of insurance policies have become more competitively priced, especially life insurance.
If you have a life policy that is several years old you may be able to change your provider for a more competitive premium, or to increase the benefit for the same monthly cost. You should seek advice before cancelling any existing policies and ensure continuity of cover when making new arrangements. The information provides helpful advice guides that will let you find out how you can protect you and your family, your mortgage, or your business.
