What should I be thinking about when it comes to my retirement? A. Ask yourself, "Who do I want to be in retirement?" Consider what your life will look like every day; if you'll want to move or continue working in a different capacity; and how much savings you will need.
When should I start planning for retirement? Begin as soon as possible. The earlier you start planning the more likely you are to have a great retirement. However, the logistical process of retiring doesn't begin until you're about three months from retirement.
