You’ve made the decision. Given yourself the go-ahead, the necessary nudge. You have turned on your computer, or brought your mobile phone to life, and headed for the search bar. Let’s admit, it is probably Google!
Or you may have cut out the ‘middle man’ and gone straight to Alexa!
The majority of times it is because you have an issue, a burning question that you are desperate to find an answer for.
One of these perhaps:
- When can I retire? 6. Why should I be saving?
- How much life insurance and protection do I need? 7. Is my pension okay?
- Where can I find a financial adviser? 8. Will I be able to afford to retire?
- How much will I need when I retire? 9. What is financial planning?
- Can I afford to see a financial adviser? 10. How can I help my children?
People often seek financial advice because of a specific issue, that one nagging question and feeling that just won’t go away, but right at the heart of that urgent search is one overriding thing: peace of mind. You want to make sure that you can live how you want without ever running out of money. It is an important goal and what Lifetime’s Digital Service is all about.
Take the query, ‘how much will I need to retire?’ It is a very worthy question to put out there. The problem is that after you have gone online and typed those words into the Google search bar (again, sorry Bing), or asked Alexa in almost a hushed tone, you probably won’t get a definitive answer. Not from those two apparent founts of knowledge anyway.
And that’s because ‘how much you need to retire’ isn’t a one size fits all answer. In fact, it is a huge ‘it depends’!
It depends on:
Where you stand in financial terms today – and what you personally deem would be a ‘comfortable’ retirement.
So where can you go to find out what you eagerly want to know? Who can you ask?
