This is the first blog post in a series that will provide you with 8 short videos to help you understand all your options on retirement. We want to equip you with all the information you need when preparing for retirement so you can make the best decisions.
Before you think “retirement is a long way away” – STOP. This series is pitched at everyone. If retirement is creeping up on you, absolutely. But even if it feels a long way away, you are never too young to get educated on this subject matter.
Next, we’re going to talk about what you do with the leftover savings. You might not necessarily be able to withdraw it all! If that’s the case, there’s going to be a lump sum left over that you can buy an annuity with. We’re going to discuss those options.
At the end of this series, it is our hope that you’ll have enough objective information to be well-informed about ALL your options.
There is no cost involved. Simply subscribe to our YouTube channel and you’ll have access to the entire series. There are only 8 videos in total. They range between 3 and 8 minutes, each.
Planning for retirement is not something we can put off until a later date. The time to plan is now.
I am passionate about helping people understand their behaviour with money and gently nudging them to spend less and save more. I have several academic journal publications on investor behaviour, financial literacy and personal finance, and perfectly understand the biases that influence how we manage our money. This blog is where I break down those ideas and share my thinking. I’ll try to cover relevant topics that my readers bring to my attention. Please read, share, and comment. That’s how we spread knowledge and help both ourselves and others to become in control of our financial situations.
