Saving for retirement is one of those things that people like to put off or not pay too much attention to. It’s often seen in the same light as going for a root canal or doing your taxes. But it’s crucially important to get serious about preparing for retirement. Retirement plans are not something you should set up and then forget about. It’s important to review your plans and your progress every year to make sure you’re on track. Especially if you’re a Boomer who is getting closer to your retirement years it’s key to stay on track and ensure that you aren’t making any retirement planning mistakes that could put your retirement in jeopardy.
