Retirement planning means allocating a certain amount of earnings or savings to your retirement fund. Everyone has different reasons for why they want to retire. For instance, you may crave financial independence at a certain age or you want to go on a world tour after you retire or move to a more peaceful place either within or outside your country.

If you want to retire without facing any financial obstacles when the day comes, you need to plan for it. You need to save money for retirement in the present to make your future better. You need to start retirement planning early, so you can retire peacefully.

Here are 5 very convincing reasons why you need to create a retirement plan early:

1. You Can Retire from Your Job Sooner than Later

Wouldn’t you want to retire early and spend your time on an island, relaxing? If you make a retirement plan, you will find yourself doing just that. When others will be working, you will be chilling by the ocean. Because unlike them, you created a proper retirement plan at an early age, which allowed you to save more money.

Because when you start early, you can save more. We would advise you to create one in your 20s. If you have passed the age, remember, age is just a number here. Start now.

2. You Have Several Investment Options

You can invest in several different types of investment options without fearing loss. Of course, you will take calculated investment risks, but you will take risks nonetheless. This is because your investment journey began early, thus giving you an upper hand over people who started retirement planning late. Those people will pay it safe, as a loss would hit them hard.

3. You Have Less Responsibilities

If you are young and unmarried, it is just “me, myself, and I.” You have no kids. You buy groceries to last only you. You pay less in the utility bills. Even for people with partners, but no kids, you can even save more money.

The same goes for people starting a retirement plan at an older age. Their kids are all grown up and have moved out and they have paid off all their loans. Therefore, increasing their savings. If your responsibilities are less and you still do not have a retirement plan in the works, it is time to put making one at the top of your priority list.

4. You Can Retire with a Handsome Amount in Your Bank Account

Retiring with a handsome amount in your bank account depends on the age you decided to create a retirement plan. People who start retirement planning in their 20s, 30s, and even 40s can put more money into their retirement savings fund. This is because a man who is 65 today can live up to 84 on average, whereas a woman who is 65 today can live up to 86 on average. Start sooner, save more.

5. You Will Have Investments to Leave for Your Family

If during your lifetime you have invested in real estate, bonds, and/or equity markets, you will have something to give to your spouse or common-in-law partner and children. If you do not have a partner or children, you can give it to your loved ones. At least you will have peace of mind knowing that you are leaving them with something upon your passing.

You can develop a retirement plan now by setting goals, knowing the amount of money you need to save, and the various investment vehicles that you want to invest your money in based on your risk tolerance and goals. You also need to consider your age, your lifestyle, and federal government benefits to find out the amount of money you need to save for retirement.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it? It is a long-established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem Ipsum will uncover many websites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where does it come from? Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
