What is retirement planning?

You would have to choose investments to reach your retirement goal based on how much money you would require after retirement.

The major factor in setting up a retirement goal is at what age you want to retire .Earlier you want to retire, more is the importance you need to give to your retirement planning.

Take up investments to match your retirement goals based on the risk you are willing to take. If you are a conservative investor invest in risk free securities. If you are an aggressive investor, invest in securities which give higher return at higher risk.

Why Retirement Planning

Live an Independent Life

Your children would provide you money for a retired life. But is it right for you to depend on them?

 

Retire Early

You can retire early with excellent retirement planning. You will have plenty of time to catch on your hobbies and other interests.

Money for Retirement

You get no income after retirement. You have to plan for your retired years now, if you want to enjoy the same lifestyle you currently enjoy.

Tax Benefits

You get tax benefits if you invest your money in a pension plan or an annuity scheme. This helps to save on tax.
