Financially Sound: How to Start Planning for Retirement
Some people are intimidated at the thought of planning for retirement, because there are so many unknowns:
- How is the market going to perform long-term?
- How are your medical needs and costs going to change?
- Where are you going to live?
- How are you going to spend your time?
- Are you going to be able to afford all these things?
But Ken Kamen, president of Mercadien Asset Management and the official investment advisor of New Jersey 101.5, has some simple advice:
You might be afraid to start saving for retirement or truly managing your money because you think you won't like what you're going to hear. You might not have the assets you'd like for the retirement timeline you really want, but all those things make planning that much more important. Information is power.
Fortunately, Ken and his team have the information and expertise to help you devise a strategy you can live with. They start with a consultation where they learn about you, your spending and savings habits and your goals. Getting started is as easy as calling 609-689-2300.
You don't want to run out of dollars before you run out of heartbeats.
