The Five Questions You Must Answer Before Retiring
When is the right time to retire? Is it now?
Most people typically consider whether they can afford to retire; but it is a much more nuanced decision than that.
Choosing the right time for you to retire is a highly personal decision, which is about much more than the dollars and cents of being able to afford it.
How much can you afford to spend during retirement?
How will you get the most out of life, without living in fear that you will run out of money before you run out of time?
There’s no prize for being the richest person in the cemetery.
How will you spend your most valuable currency, your time?
A successful retirement encompasses more than how you’re spending your money, but how best to spend your time.
All play with no purpose can lead to boredom and a feeling of “is this all there is?”
How will you maintain and grow your social network during retirement?
The importance of making new connections with people doesn’t stop when you retire.
As social creatures, we need to avoid isolation and loneliness which can create a higher risk of adverse health conditions and/or cognitive decline.
Is your portfolio or 401(k) too risky for your financial plan?
The portfolio that helped you to create wealth during your career, may not be the right portfolio to help you to preserve wealth during your retirement.
The risk you’re comfortable taking with your investments may be different now that you don’t have a paycheck to rely on.
