Retirement is momentous, isn’t it? Most people spend their whole lives saving, preparing, and dreaming of this time in their lives. You’re finally “off the clock” and have time to do the things you want to do. Maybe you’ve dreamed of traveling somewhere special, or reading that stack of books you’ve been neglecting, or spending more time with your family. Your retirement is supposed to be a time in your life that you can enjoy with minimal stressors and worry.
Unfortunately, for many retirees, retirement isn’t the worry-free dreamland that they imagined. Almost half of Americans report feeling worried about whether they’ve saved enough money to last throughout their retirements, with only 36% of people saying that they feel confident they’ve saved enough money to be comfortable in this phase of life. So, if you’re feeling more uncertain about your financial situation and retirement preparations than you’d like, know that you’re not alone.
Luckily, there are tangible steps that you can take to whip your finances into shape and improve your financial confidence in retirement. Here are four small steps you can take to help feel more confident about your retirement plan.
