Planning For The Future With A Retirement Advisor
It may not seem urgent to save for your golden years when you consider daily expenses, debt repayment, and short-term savings goals. The sooner you get started, the better leveraging compound interest will work for you, allowing your money to grow with you. It doesn’t have to be overwhelming. You can rely on a retirement advisor to help you navigate the process. Discover the benefits of a retirement advisor and how to choose the right one for your retirement management.
What Is A Retirement Advisor?
A retirement advisor is a financial advisor with extensive knowledge in helping clients save and prepare for the future. A retirement advisor can carry any number of financial designations, including:
- Certified Financial Planner™
- Certified Professional in Retirement Income
- Chartered Financial Analyst
- Registered Investment Advisor
- Personal Financial Specialist
These titles reflect the type of services an advisor offers and the level of training they have. To achieve these distinctions, you will typically need to enroll in specialized education and pass an exam.
Retirement advisors may work independently or for an advisory firm. Each is different. The type of retirement advisor that you choose will depend on what you need and what type of relationship you are looking for.
How Will You Be Spending Your Retirement?
When you meet with a retirement advisor, the first thing you should do is to get a complete look at your financial picture based on all of the information you have provided. How much do you have in assets? Are you a homeowner? Do you own real estate, investments, or other valuable assets? How much are you owing? Are you paying a mortgage, car payment, credit card payments, student loans, small-business liabilities, or any other loans? How can you manage your debt and still save for retirement? Are you planning to travel, or indulge in expensive hobbies? What amount will you receive from Social Security every month? When is the best time for you to begin receiving benefits? What about insurance? Do you have enough insurance? These are all important questions to think about for your retirement. An advisor will help guide you through the process.
After receiving all your information, a retirement advisor will typically prepare a report that provides you with a comprehensive financial plan for retirement. Based on different scenarios, the report will show how much money you can withdraw each month from your retirement accounts and how much you need to save every month to achieve your goals. You should have your retirement advisor guide you through all tax considerations and tax planning for your retirement as well.
How To Choose A Retirement Advisor
Are you ready to hire a financial advisor for retirement? When looking for candidates, there are a few things you should keep in mind:
- The certification and professional background of the advisor
- Their wide range of services
- Their fee structure
- Act ethically in your best interests
- How often do they communicate with clients and their preferred communication method
- Their overall investment strategy is and their style
- The client base that advisors typically work with
A person in their 20s that has not started a family yet will likely have different retirement planning needs than someone in their 50s. Your advisor should have worked with clients with similar financial goals and backgrounds to yours.
