Planning for retirement

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Retirement. You've worked hard, and now you want to bring your vision for retirement into better focus. Use your PayPal resources to help you map out the retirement you want. Remember, it is never too early to start planning for when you stop working.

Planning starts now

Your chances of a secure retirement will improve if you start making decisions and checking items off your to-do list at least a year before you want to retire.

Consider these questions as you begin planning:

  • At what age do I plan to retire?
  • What do I want to do in retirement?
  • When do I want to retire?
  • How much money will I need to save by the time I retire?
  • How much will I need to invest every month to hit my retirement goals?
  • Which retirement accounts should I use?
  • What should I be investing in within my retirement accounts?
  • What about medical expenses and long-term care in retirement?
