“Grow old with me…the best is yet to be!” So go the lines of a song. Yet to think that one day not very far off in the future you will be confined to a rocking chair and have no source of income is very frightening indeed. Therefore the best strategy here is to start retirement planning wisely for a financially safe and secure tomorrow. And since it never rains but it pours, to stash away a nest egg for difficulties such as a life-saving operation or costly medicine may be the best policy.
The retirement planning ways are many but we have distilled them into three basic objectives. By their proper application in your life you may save a lot for your senescence. The only thing you have to be careful of is putting your money into risky schemes that may swindle you. So, keeping the precaution of playing it safe in mind we present before you the thrifty three:
1. It is never a good idea to wait till the last moment before catching a train. And so it goes in financial funding for the future. Start in your middle age by saving up at least 20% to 30% of your annual income. And by setting it aside somewhere where there will be no danger to its holistic value, you will create value for yourself in your years of helplessness.
2. While a bank is a good place to invest your money, not just any old bank will do. You have to make a survey and choose a reputable financial center to guard your cash for you. In today’s world the robbers who loot banks have the most cutting edge equipment to crack through the most foolproof safe or vault. Therefore choose the best in terms of banking establishments and rest assured that your money is in good hands.
3. Last but not least get some insurance so that you or your loved ones will be taken care of in case of an emergency such as an accident or illness. It is never too late to start saving up little by little in the form of payments for life insurance. Your spouse and children deserve some guarantee of financial coverage in case the worse happens.
