Senior Care Center, a center that helps elderly people and their families find, choose, and move into assisted living facilities all across the country, is raising awareness about the importance of planning for retirement. The center cites the article at as containing excellent pointers for anyone who is wondering how to get a leg up in saving for retirement.

Once a person reaches the end of their financial independence after they stop working, they only have their life savings to fall back on. Without a monthly paycheck coming in, all financial decisions have to be made very carefully since overspending can chip away at savings that were meant to last for several years. Retirement planning also becomes critically important once the rising cost of living is factored in. This can lead to dependence on family members which can strain the family’s resources, and possibly the relationship. The article highlighted by Senior Care Center lists 5 different mistakes that most people end up making while budgeting for retirement.

An important consideration according to the article is planning the post-retirement lifestyle that one intends to live. Depending on whether the person plans to live a sequestered life frolicking amongst their grandsons and granddaughters, or if they intend to live out the rest of their days capitalizing on their earnings throughout their career touring the world, the post-retirement lifestyle will play a major role in deciding on what kind of investments one has to make to support it. Location is very important as a higher retirement saving can give one the choice to live comfortably in locations with more amenities and more personalized care. Retirees can also choose to spend their days in assisted living homes that allow them to live independently as they grow older and then move to higher levels of care when they need it.

Another mistake that people tend to make is that they budget too little for their retirement and start too late in life building up the retirement fund. The earlier one starts, the bigger headstart they get, and they are able to reach their financial goals faster with time to spare. Nobody usually thinks of retirement when they are young as it is just not a priority at that time and growing old seems an eternity away. This mistake can prove costly as options start to dwindle as one grows older.

Ignoring economic fluctuations is also something that can create unexpected dents in one’s retirement savings. There is no saying when things might go south and when good times might turn for the worse. It is, therefore, necessary to factor that into one’s calculations for retirement savings. An option is to invest in such a way that the investments grow with or, in other words, are least affected by the direction of world events and financial markets. Assuming a base inflation rate when planning for retirement is also a good idea.

Another thing to keep in mind is the diversification of one’s portfolio. This basically comes down to the age-old idiom of not having too many eggs in one basket. Regardless of how stable and secure some investments might seem, it is never a good idea to go all-in on just one vehicle of security for one’s future. It is always recommended to divide one’s savings into different avenues that may return dividends on the investment at different rates of return. This way, some investments act as insurance for the riskier, more fickle investments.

Finally, the article picks out the single most important reason for failing to plan for retirement. It says that most people lack the seriousness and financial discipline required to invest in their own future. They see retirement plans or pension plans as having too little of a return to bother with them. They also get worried about the safety of their investments.
