Understanding your retirement needs
Once you have an idea of how much savings you need to fund your retirement lifestyle, consider the following:
- Do you really need your savings in a lump sum upon hitting your retirement age?
- Do you prefer a regular monthly payout that increases over the years?
- Will a higher non-guaranteed payout or a lower stable payout be more attractive to you?
- Will old age disability results in an additional financial burden for you and your family members?
- What options does your retirement plan offers, if you need a sudden withdrawal or meet with disabilities?
Work with an experienced financial planner that can address your personal concerns and savings budget. This will ensure that your retirement goals can proceed without over-committed on your finances.
Knowing your retirement savings options
Taking on higher risk may not equal to higher financial returns, but you are taking the highest risk if the returns on your savings are lower than the rate of inflation.
As such, a balanced portfolio of investment products such as ETFs, Unit Trust, Dividend yield stock and long-term annuity may be required to fit your investment risk appetite.
You may also choose to have some savings invested in insurance products that allow you to withdraw without financial penalty on your principle. This allows you potentially unlimited upsides while capping your risk with a 100% guaranteed of your invested amount.
