5 Tips for Making Decisions for Your Financial Future

5 Tips for Making Decisions for Your Financial Future

If you are someone who hasn’t sat down to determine how much money you will need each month when you retire, you are not alone. In fact, according to the United States Department of Labor, less than half of all Americans have taken the time to calculate how much they need to save for retirement. What’s more is that they also report that the average person will spend 20 years in retirement, making it crucial that they have saved for those Golden Years.

“Many people assume that retirement is a long way off, and they don’t get serious about planning for it,” explains Ed Meridian, founder of the Network Advantage Card. “But your financial future doesn’t just have to mean retirement either. It could be next year, or in the next few years. It’s important that we take the time now to plan for our financial future, whether we are planning for next year, when our child starts college, or for our own retirement.”
