Retirement planning doesn’t stop the day you retire. It continues as your life unfolds. As such, it’s important for you to talk with your adult children or other family members about what you want for your life now, and in the future.
It’s important for you, since it’s your life that you’re planning for. However, it’s also important for our nation. The fact is, the Baby Boomer generation is aging, and that will present a unique set of challenges for communities all across the country, due to the sheer number of Boomers. Your community needs you to plan.
And, let’s face it … there will be decisions that have to be made in the future, so doing good retirement planning is very important. You and your family will be presented with choices along the way, which can impact your life, lifestyle, health, and even care (should you need it).
