Retirement is that time in life that so many of us look forward to… we all want to enjoy retirement.
It is the time when we all would like to be able to do the things we don’t have time to do while we are still working. Thoughts of hobbies, sports activities, travel and more dance through our heads. But, if you want to retire well and enjoy retirement, and be able to do all those enjoyable activities, you have to avoid making some very common mistakes that can really mess up your retirement years.
The first and most common retirement mistake people make is failing to make a plan! You’ve heard the expression, “If you fail to plan you plan to fail.” Well that holds true for retiring as much as for anything else in life. Failure to plan is a plan to fail.
If you want to enjoy retirement, establishing a retirement plan means more than simply participating in your company’s 401k.
That is an important part, but there’s more to retirement planning than that. Sitting down with an Estate and Asset Planning Attorney can make a big difference in the way you retire and how you benefit your loved ones upon your passing.
