Retirement Planning

You're probably looking forward to your retirement years. But a comfortable retirement doesn't just happen overnight--you have to plan for it. A few simple planning steps today can often go a long way toward making your retirement dreams a reality. Have you thought about how much retirement income you'll need to reach your goals and meet your expenses? Do you know how much you'll have? Count on Social Security to provide only a small portion of what you'll need. Other sources of income will have to fill in the gaps.

This means that you'll have to build your own retirement nest egg. Take full advantage of employer-sponsored retirement plans and IRAs. Consider other retirement planning vehicles as well, including annuities. Weigh all of your options and choose the ones that best fit your needs and circumstances.
