When it comes to thinking about your retirement, do you plan ahead? Or do you tend to put it off?
Personal habits and emotions can affect how you approach retirement planning. For example, if it is important to you to feel secure about the future, you may be more inclined to think ahead and plan for retirement. If it makes you feel uncomfortable to think about the late stages of your life, you may avoid planning for your retirement.
These statements express different attitudes toward retirement planning. Check any that apply to you.
One thing is clear: To ensure that you have enough to meet your retirement needs, it's essential to start planning early—at the beginning of your working life, if possible. Start saving regularly, even if it's just a small amount every month.
