    Your Retirement Plan Should Be Both Flexible And Allow You To Track Your Established Goals.
    Copyright © 2005, Abigail Vanderbeek

    When developing your plan, one of the first things you
    need to consider is flexibility in your savings.  Some
    savings options include being able to change your main
    retirement fund and having the ability to decide what you
    want in your portfolio.
    Another option to improve flexibility in your retirement
    should include the ability to changes the location of your
    money.  Because there are continuous fluctuations in the
    retirement funds, and not all of the stay where they are,
    you should be able to move yours when you feel it
    necessary. Some funds are less risky than others, as
    well.  Since it is possible that the fund you’ve invested
    in could have problems, you should have the flexibility to
    move your investment so somewhere safer.
    With this in mind, if you are counting on Social Security
    as your only form of retirement savings, you may want to
    rethink this plan.  There are a lot of reports that
    suggest those who are relying strictly on Social Security
    for their retirement may be in trouble if the system is
    unable to support all of the people who will need it in
    the future, as is indicated by current estimates.
    Other examples of retirement plans you may want to
    reevaluate are ones like the 401K.  Once considered risk
    free, they are not now as safe as the once were.  Analyze
    your plan and if it seems like it may not be enough to
    support you during you retirement you may have to find
    another way to save.
    Flexibility is something that you need to build into your
    retirement plan before it is too late to make changes.
    One way to accomplish this is to diversify your retirement
    portfolio.  Be sure to invest in several different
    companies and make sure those investments are spread
    across a variety of industries.  If there is a financial
    crisis in a particular industry, it usually affects all
    companies involved.  By diversifying you’ll ensure that
    your retirement investment won’t be wiped out, because you
    won’t have all of your money in one place.
    Consistency in your contribution is a huge concern.  Even
    if you get into a financial crunch and want to stop paying
    in for a few months, this is the last place that you
    should cut your budget.  Once you stop making
    contributions, it can be difficult to get back into the
    Take charge of your own retirement plan, if you want to be
    assure the funds will be available when you need them.
    Follow the advice listed above and spread your retirement
    money out across a diversity of plans, be flexible and
    ready to move your savings if the economy changes, and
    always be consistent in your contributions.
