As you move through life, it’s not uncommon for goals and priorities to change. What you imagined retirement to be when you were in your 20s and 30s may not be at all what you’re imagining in your 40s and 50s. And you’ll probably continue to fine-tune your plans as retirement continues to come into focus.
How have your priorities changed over time?
Tracking your needs
One of the ways to stay on track is to periodically run through a checklist of key retirement items to help you to continue to refine your retirement goals. Sometimes seeing the numbers in writing can be very helpful. Be sure to print and complete this retirement needs checklist.
