If you’re like most people, you probably know how much money you have in your checking account. You may even know how much credit card debt you owe. And if you’ve been ambitious, you might even have a 401(k) through your employer. For most people, this is as far as they go when it comes to dealing with their finances.
Maybe you’ve told yourself that balancing the checkbook and contributing to your 401(k) is enough to get you to retirement. The reality is that, on average, most people report having only $25,000 put aside for retirement. Add to that the confusion around figuring out just how much you really need in retirement and it’s no surprise that more people now expect to work into their 80s.
But it doesn’t have to be if you’re willing to ask for help. Choosing to work with a financial professional means you’re serious about reaching your long-term financial goals through saving and investing. The best financial planners will stand as objective third parties who are committed to helping you understand your current financial reality and how to plan for tomorrow.
The reality is that most of us don’t have the training or time to understand the ins and outs of the financial system. Whether it’s saving for retirement or sending the kids to college, working with a financial planner can help you cut through the complexities of planning for the future.
