How to plan for retirement:

Knowing that you're all set to be financially secure can be a huge relief. The problem is that most people never reach this point. So, how can it be done? Well that's what we're here for!

How much are you working with?

First thing's first. Find out a general idea of how much money you are making or will be making. If you can be sure that you will be making at least this much for a specific amount of time, you are ready to move on to the next step. If not, try to estimate (it's better to underestimate in this case, better safe than sorry).

How much money do you plan to use every year?

Once you've figured out how much you'll make every year, the next item on the agenda is to determine how much money you will want to take out every year of your retirement. (Remember, to overestimate for inflation).
