Have you considered your pension plan?
For the majority of us our goal is early retirement, yet how many of us actually make a conscious effort to consider our retirement planning?
When it’s often deemed an issue that will affect us only in the distant future, it is easy to relegate the topic to the ‘back burner’ and spend our energies coping with our all-too-often frenetic working conditions, our families and fitting both into busy social lives. Yet, providing for retirement is a major consideration and one we all need to take a long honest look at, because it affects not only ourselves, but our families too. Deciding when we can afford to take a step back, yet maintain a particular lifestyle, requires careful retirement planning.
Some hard facts from the UK:
- at 65 the average man can currently expect to live another 18 years in retirement, according to the Office for National Statistics
- at 65 the average woman can expect to live another 21 years in retirement
- By 2021 there will be more people over 80 than there are children under five
