While many of us dream of an early retirement with a beautiful bungalow and a fancy car, there are only a few of us who really care about investing in future plans.
While many of us dream of an early retirement with a beautiful bungalow and a fancy car, there are only a few of us who really care about investing some quality thoughts on it and start acting seriously. Again, there are some people who completely forget about this part of their future. However, the mantra to a successful retirement planning is to venture out early on this road and reap the fruits of compounding. This is because; it is never too early when it comes to planning for retirement.
Why go for early planning?
It is always wise to start your retirement planning at a very young age and if you need to know why, then it is because of the following reasons:
Life expectancy:† On an average the life expectancy of males is 67 years and that of the males is 71 years. If modern technology keeps on contributing at a similar rate, life expectancy is most likely to shoot up. As a result, you get extra years to spend your life as a retired individual.
Medical emergencies:† As you age, your health problems also pile up. The more the health problems or the serious they get, the more your medical expenditure increases. This means a huge dent in your earning after retirement. If you fail to pay the bills, you are left with no choice but to liquidate your assets.
Nuclear families:† When you belong to a nuclear family, which comprises the minimum number of members, you have to build a corpus to last you through your entire retirement days. You would definitely not like someone else to bear your burden, when you have an option of doing it your own.
When we know we cannot look up to our government to subsidize our retirement, it is at our own interest that we start planning it and live our own lifestyle in the coming years. Again, if you have heard people say that it requires investing huge capitals, then give up on that myth and understand that a careful planning can save you the best of comfort in your golden years even without investing large sums.
