Are You Ready To Retire? #GenworthUSA

This post was brought to you by Genworth as part of a campaign by the  Brandfluential team. All opinions, humor and thoughts in this post are my own.

I don’t know why but I feel like retirement is so far away but in reality it’s right around the corner.  I have a daughter that is going to be a senior in high school next year which is proof that time flies and before I know it retirement will be here.  I can honestly say that I haven’t done much in the way of getting prepared for retirement.  I’m not sure what that is because I do want to be prepared when the time does come.

I was on the internet a few weeks back and read an article called “7 tips for people planning to retire in 2013” and it just got me thinking.  I remember when my grandfather was getting ready to retire and all of the work he went through to make sure that he had all of his ducks in a row.  He needed to change his investment strategy from an aggressive approach to a more savings/growth approach.  He also noted that he needed to take minimum distributions from his 401K every year.  Thinking back now getting ready for retirement is really complicated so if you need some assistance you may want to turn to Genworth.  Retirement takes a lot of work and planning especially since you are getting yourself set financially for life.

I still have a few years left to work but I need to get started on my retirement saving fro sure.

Are you ready for retirement?
