Saving Enough for Retirement? Probably Not!

If you’re like most Americans, you’re not saving enough for retirement – and once you stop working your lifestyle is going to face some big, often unanticipated adjustments!

A study from the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College reveals that fewer than half of U.S. households will be able to maintain their pre-retirement lifestyle after retirement. The biggest single problem is a simple one: people aren’t saving enough. As a result, many if not most retirees will face unpleasant surprises in the future. This failure to plan affects every aspect of a retiree’s life.

We’ve consulted with thousands of seniors, and virtually every single one wants to avoid becoming a burden to their loved ones as they age. To do this they hope to protect the assets they’ve managed to accumulate. But without a solid plan, when retirement resources prove inadequate, those closest to you will be making plans on your behalf. This will put great pressure on them and force you into lifestyle choices that don’t reflect your wishes.

You can read the Retirement Deficit article here, as reported at www.nbcnews.com.

So what do you do once you’ve decided it’s time to get serious about retirement planning? We recommend retirees attend one of our Life Planning Seminars taking place regularly at locations throughout the Puget Sound region. At these seminars you’ll gain vital information to help you create – or improve – a comprehensive plan for your retirement years.

Congratulations! You are about to begin the process of completing estate planning documents – for free.

Before you get started, you should know that though this service is being provided by Life Point Law, an estate planning firm, by using the free service you will not be creating an attorney-client relationship, and no attorney will review your work. Estate planning can be complicated and generally requires some degree of legal analysis to ensure you have the right provisions. Especially if you have been married more than once, you have a blended family, or you have considerable wealth. We encourage you to seek some guidance, or at the very least, have a legal professional review your work before you call it completed.

Help is available. If you’re interested in getting a second opinion on the legal documents you have created, Life Point Law offers a Peace of Mind review that can put your mind at ease knowing you have dotted all your I’s and crossed all your T’s. Let our skilled attorneys review the legal documents you have created to make sure they meet your goals.

You may also want to drop by our offices to get your documents executed (witnessed and notarized) so they are in full force and effect when they need to be used.

You will receive an email soon with information about how to schedule your Peace of Mind Consultation.

By clicking ‘Start Working on Your Free Estate Plan’ below, you will acknowledge your understanding that no attorney-client relationship exists between Life Point Law and yourself.
