Retirement Expert Bill Losey Writes About The Importance of Budgeting For Retirement
Bill Losey, America’s Retirement Strategist® and 401(k) rollover expert, publishes a new article stressing the importance for retirees to develop a budget.
Saratoga Springs, NY. – January 6, 2012 – Bill Losey, author and retirement expert and advisor, recently wrote an article urging readers to consider developing a budget for retirement. With this article, found on his website http://www.BillLosey.com, titled “Budgeting For Retirement – It Makes Sense Yet Many Retirees Live Without One” Bill explains the importance of planning your retirement budget before retirement. Bill also touches on some factors that can cause retirees to stray from their budget, and how they can try to avoid such a circumstance.
“You wont be able to withdraw an unlimited amount of money in retirement. So a retirement budget is a necessity. Some retirees forego one, only to regret it later,” writes Bill. “Often people need about 70-80% of their end salaries in retirement, but this can vary. So years before you leave work, sit down for an hour or so (perhaps with the financial professional you know and trust) and take a look at your probable monthly expenses. Online calculators can help.”
On the subject of “budget wreckers,” Bill writes, “There are a few factors that can cause you to stray from a retirement budget. You can’t do much about some of them (sudden health crises, for example), but you can try to mitigate others.” Some of these include supporting your kids, grandkids or relatives with gifts or loans; withdrawing more than your portfolio can easily return; and dragging big debts into retirement that will nibble at your savings.
