Retirement investment: Getting the Advice That You Need

Retirement is something that many people can’t wait to get to, but that others absolutely dread. It’s a time when you don’t have to be just financially secure, but also emotional ready. Many people feel like they have no use when they retire. They can feel a lack of purpose, and this is why you have to have a great support network to keep your peace of mind as you head into your golden years.

Retirement is something that many people can’t wait to get to, but that others absolutely dread. It’s a time when you don’t have to be just financially secure, but also emotional ready. Many people feel like they have no use when they retire. They can feel a lack of purpose, and this is why you have to have a great support network to keep your peace of mind as you head into your golden years.

Asking for retirement investment advice and having an emotional support network is an integral part of a successful retirement strategy.

 

Get into the right frame of mind

 

Many people underestimate the effect that retirement can have on their minds. Most psychologists advise that soon-to-be retirees make sure that they have a healthy body and mind, intellectual stimulation, and some sense of purpose. While some people make the transition to retirement pretty seamlessly, others may need more support to get there.

Sound retirement investment is a great way to get your mind right before you retire, and getting started on this as soon as possible is highly advised. If you are feeling weighed down by finances and it’s stressing you out – consult an accountant. Seeing a psychologist is also a great way to get you into the right frame of mind before you retire.

 

A financial advisor is your best bet

 

According to a report from the Society of Actuaries (SOA), only 52% of pre-retirees and 44% of retirees make use of the services of a financial planner. They will point you in the right direction with regards to plans, annuities, investments, and other options that may be best suited to your needs.

A financial advisor can give you sound retirement investment advice and will help you implement a strategy that will ensure you save enough money to live out your retirement without having to stress about monetary woes.

 

Seek out wisdom from friends and family

 

The best retirement investment advice doesn’t necessarily have to come from professionals of course, and your friends and family are an important part of getting essential advice and support when you are heading into retirement. Your friends and family will have your best interest at heart and will be able to advise you on subjects that they have inside knowledge about, such as if you will manage a part-time job or if you should move abroad, etc.

However, it’s not just old friends and family that make up a support network in retirement – it’s also important to join clubs that interest you and meet new people that have similar interests that will keep you entertained during your retirement. Many of these people will be in the same boat as you and therefore will be able to dispense retirement investment advice, as well as have the time to provide you with much needed friendship and company.

Getting the right kind of advice and support for your retirement is absolutely essential to ensure that you aren’t just financially ready, but also emotionally stable enough to make the often hard transition into retirement. Our new guide The Ultimate Blueprint for Retirement Finance is an incredible resource for learning all you need to know about investments and other retirement options.
