Planning for retirement may seem intimidating. For many people, it feels like stepping away from your success at work and into the unknown. However, what you’re really doing is making sure that your successes continue and know how to budget. Retirement is simply the point at which you stop working for your money, and your money starts working for you. But you’ll need expert advice on the best way to move forward and how to plan for it.
Retirees are much more active and engaged than in generations past.
