Retirement Savings – Issues That Worry Millennials
Just when you thought that retirement savings meant putting away as much money as you needed for your lifestyle…now, making plans for unknown factors creeps in.
For the millennial generation, unfortunately, much is unknown. There are four primary concerns that we will list here and then elaborate later on:
1. Will social security and Medicare survive?
2. Will they have to take care of their elderly parents?
3. What will future health care costs be?
4. Are their retirement funds being managed properly?
The title of this article says it all and is really the bottom line you need to strive for. Your goal is to find any unnecessary spending and cut back. We all have daily expenses that can be trimmed and added to our retirement savings which should be one of our top priorities.
One of the reasons that the “B” word or budget is so terrifying is that it’s associated with sacrifice. This simply isn’t true…a budget is, and should be, a matter of choice.
Two primary choices to begin with – do you want to live it up today and not care about tomorrow? Or do you want to exercise good judgment and cut back a little today so that you will have a more comfortable retirement? I’d like to have both, but I’m not aware of any wealthy relatives that would sponsor me.
