Are some of you planning for retirement? While we know that saving isn’t easy, we want to help you stay informed about this important financial decision.
Here are a few things to remember when thinking about saving: talk about money, get a financial role model, and do your best to save.
First, do your best to treat money as a normal topic of conversation, not as a “taboo” subject. If we learn how to communicate with family members about money it will be easier when big decisions come up later.
Next, find a positive financial role model. This can be someone you trust and who you can openly discuss important financial situations with. These individuals help guide and support you with tricky financial problems or roadblocks.
Finally, put a little money away each month. Identify financial areas where you can act early, examine your spending, and realize that sometimes uncontrollable events can happen.
Hopefully those few things will help you be more financially ready for retirement.
