This week on the tipping point: What you need to think of at each stage of your financial journey
What should you be thinking about at 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, maybe even 80, when it comes to your financial journey?
In your 20s: The best thing you can do in your 20s is to save every penny you can because compounding works best when you start early. The earlier you start the more money you’ll make. Use a Roth account if you can so that your money grows tax-free for life.
In your 30s: This is the stage where you want to start to consolidate and bring everything together into what I would call a more concerted effort, as opposed to just having a hodgepodge of investments in different places. You should also start building an estate plan and your health savings plan.
In your 40s: When you get into your 40s, hopefully, you’ve listened to our advice and you have accumulated wealth, and you’re at a point where you have to get serious about the savings, especially college funding. Do this with 529 plans.
In your 50s: This is when you realize that you may not be working with the right financial advisor. If you take a look at your financial plan and realize you don’t have one but instead, you have a collection of investments that were either bought or sold to you in mutual funds, annuities, stocks, and bonds. Make sure that you make those course corrections before it’s too late. You can also make catch-up contributions at this age. Start looking at long-term health care as well.
In your 60s: This is when you decide when to retire, look at how much money you’ll need in retirement, and how you’ll draw on your portfolios to get it. This is where you have to get really strategic in your planning because now you’re there.
