Early Retirement Planning - What Factors You Need To Enjoy The Perfect Retirement!

No matter where you are in life, it is extremely important to look ahead to years when you are not going to be interested in or able to keep working the forty hours a week you may be used to. As time goes on, retirement planning becomes more and more crucial; you need to plan out things like what you want to do and where you want to live, and that can be an overwhelming thought. If you just keep a few things in mind however, you'll realize that planning for the perfect retirement is a lot easier than you think it is!

The first thing to keep in mind is that you want plan for much longer than you plan to be alive. It is important to do so, because on retirement, you'll be living on an fixed income, and careful planning is the key to surviving and thriving on it. With regards to living on a fixed income, as the time for retirement draws closer, you may want to eliminate most discretionary funds from your spending and see what living on a fixed income is like. This will prepare you for a time when you have less leeway to experiment. If it turns out that you are spending more than your assets are earning or you, this is something you want to know well in advance.

You will want to make regular contributions to your employer's 401(k) plan or your SEP-IRA. In light of planning for the inevitable, check out Roth IRAs or a traditional IRA if you qualify. These investments are your future, and you'll want to make sure that you treat them with the appropriate seriousness. In a similar vein, you'll want to pay off major debts as quickly as possible so that they are not a drain on your finances. Things like home mortgages and student loans can work against you when you're trying to set up a decent retirement plan. If the debt is unavoidable, consider putting some cash towards the debt and the rest towards a saving plan. A low interest loan or a low interest line of credit can help you with regards to reducing credit card debt and some high-interest debt.

If you are concerned about a combination of loss of assets and the need for nursing-home care, you may wish to invest in long term care insurance. This insurance will make sure that you will have basic needs like eating and bathing met if you are in a situation where you can no longer perform those acts yourself without aid. Examine your health insurance carefully, and you will likely find that while the health insurance covers things like hospital stays and medication, long term care is not covered. It is very important to find out what will be paid for and what you will need to cover yourself.

When you are trying to plan for your future, do yourself a favor and don't sell yourself short! Plan for the worst, and most likely, it won't happen.
