Will You Retire in 2020?

Will 2020 be your retirement year? For some, retirement comes at a milestone. Maybe it’s 35 years on the job or their 65th birthday, or maybe their goal is to retire when they have $1,000,000 in savings. But retirement is different for everyone and it’s a big decision to make. You might not be ready on your 65th birthday, or maybe you’ll be ready before. Either way, take the time to decide if you will retire in 2020 by answering these 3 questions.

  1. Do you have a lot of debt? Before you retire, you should try to eliminate credit card debt and high-interest debt. Once you no longer have that steady paycheck from your job, you don’t want to have to worry about rising interest rates and late charges. Paying off a mortgage is another goal for some before they retire, however, others don’t see it as a priority. Either way, make sure you are aware of the expenses you will have in retirement and make sure you have income to provide for them.
  2. Have you saved enough? By looking at the expenses you expect in retirement, and the amount of years that you will be in retirement, generally around 30, you can get a better idea of how much you will need to live off of. All of this combined can show you how much you should have saved and therefore if you are ready for retirement.
  3. Do you have enough to do? Getting ready to leave your job and embark on the journey of retirement is a big step. It’s important not to overlook how you will spend your time in retirement. Picking hobbies and things that interest you and planning different post-retirement activities gives retirees a sense of purpose. But, it’s also important to pace yourself, focus on one or two activities that are important to you so that your schedule is not overwhelmed. Also consider the impact that retirement will have on your partner.
