Take time April 13-17 to consider your options and insure your future.
National Retirement Planning Week kicks off today to encourage Americans to plan for their financial future. The week is organized by the National Retirement Planning Coalition — a group of prominent education, consumer advocacy and financial services organizations that recognize the ongoing need to help Americans plan for retirement.
“Many Utahns are looking forward to reaching retirement age, when they can look back at the many years of work they have done, while enjoying the fruits of those labors,” said Utah Insurance Commissioner Todd E. Kiser. “But if they haven’t done anything to save for the future, that age may be even further off. Retirement planning is essential to being ready for the future.”
Along with traditional financial instruments like annuities, 401(k)s and IRAs, insurance is critical. While the bulk of your asset base should not be overly invested in this group, investors should not ignore the importance of a good mixture of life insurance with long-term care, medical coverage and Medicare.
The National Retirement Planning Coalition is spearheaded by the Insured Retirement Institute, which is committed to educating Americans about the importance of retirement planning and is determined to make this a national priority.
National Retirement Planning Week and other coalition activities will demonstrate that it is still possible to “Retire On Your Terms” if comprehensive retirement plans are properly developed and managed. To support its educational and awareness efforts, the coalition maintains www.RetireOnYourTerms.org, which features resources and tools to help Americans focus on their long-term financial goals.
Events and information about retirement planning can be found from April 13 to 17 at www.RetireOnYourTerms.org.
