Securing a healthy, comfortable future is everyone’s dream. For this reason, it’s important to make informed decisions concerning your retirement. After all, increased life expectancy means more time spent in retirement. As encouraging as this may be, many of us lack the resources to carry us through. The United States Department of Labor states that fewer than half of Americans have calculated how much they need to save for retirement.

It’s imperative to ensure your affairs are in order. If you don’t, someone else surely will. Therefore, no matter your financial worth, having an estate plan is vital in making sure your assets are properly cared for—with your goals in mind.
A basic estate plan includes a will, a power of attorney, and a living will or health-care proxy. Likewise, don’t neglect to take stock of assets such as, retirement savings, insurance policies, and other personal investments. Whom do you trust to handle your finances? Who will receive your inheritance? Whom will you confide in to make important medical decisions regarding your care? It’s important to discuss these matters with loved ones. Establishing a plan protects the interests of both you and your loved ones from costly court fees and unnecessary state taxes. Don’t leave your future to chance. Make sure you have a plan in place and you’ve discussed it with those most important to you.
Whatever the beginning point—a birthday, an anniversary, or a weekend at the cottage—pick a date and have the talk. Share with them your hopes and concerns for your future and encourage them to join you on your unique decision-making journey.
