    If your retirement is further ahead, it’s a good idea to take a close look at your retirement portfolio and start setting money aside now. A financial professional or retirement advisor can help you decide how much of your income to save, where to invest your funds and how to plan for taxation.

    When Should I Start Preparing?

    Experts ranging from Wall Street brokerages to the U.S. Dept. of Labor to top-tier financial reporters agree: the best way to start planning for retirement is setting aside savings starting in your 20s. This means more years for your investments to thrive in the stock market, and it means you won’t have to panic toward the end of your career as you get ready for a future away from a steady job.

    How We Can Help

    After you put aside a portion of your wages for several months, you choose where to put your growing savings. The most often suggested option is a fund with tax perks such as a 401(k) or an IRA, which you set up on your own. You can set aside retirement funds before the money is taxed or you can receive it after retirement without accruing taxes. If you invest without these tax benefits, you will be taxed on the original income and be taxed at the capital gains rate when you earn profits.You can also choose between investing in stocks, bonds, or a combination of investments known as a mutual fund.

    Your strategy might adjust as the markets change. You can keep up on the essentials of making a plan for retirement by reading business news, but a financial professional has the knowledge to take in all the details. If you rely on a financial advisor you can trust, you will save yourself stress and hassle and will have more success.
