At some point, everyone wants to retire. However, when you retire and what your retirement looks like is different for each person. You might want to retire at age 40 or 70. You might want to travel extensively or take up a part-time job as a passion. Whatever your goals, you can achieve them if you plan accordingly.

Your BB&T Wealth advisor will help you pinpoint your retirement vision and chart your course to achieve it, adapting along the way to keep you moving forward.

Where are you on your journey?

It’s never too early to start saving for retirement, and the sooner you begin, the easier it is to reach your goals.

Keeping your focus on long-term financial goals requires consistency, flexibility and planning.

  • Develop a comprehensive financial plan with your BB&T Wealth advisor and Financial Planning Strategist
  • Revisit your plan, especially as life events such as marriage, children, new homes, and changing jobs occur
  • Meet with your BB&T Wealth advisory team regularly to monitor progress towards your retirement goals
  • Continue to contribute to your 401(k), Vantage IRA or CD, Vantage IDA and other savings vehicles

As you approach retirement, it’s critical to finalize your retirement strategy.

  • Decide when you want to retire
  • Define what lifestyle you want to enjoy
  • Understand what income you need and expenses you should expect—from daily living expenses to health care and long-term care costs
  • Ensure your investment allocation and risk management options provide the income and security you need

Taking control of your financial situation during retirement is essential to maintaining your lifestyle and preserving your legacy.

  • Compare your expected income and expenses versus the reality of your retirement
  • Revisit your plan and make any appropriate changes as life events occur—both expected and unexpected
  • Continue to evaluate your sources of income and investment allocation
  • Plan your legacy and transfer of wealth to the next generation
