This is the time when the financial decisions you make have the greatest impact on your lifestyle and financial position in retirement. Look at your estimated retirement income sources and match them up with projected expenses, as this may be the time to look at topping up your pension contributions. Invest wisely in line with your age, risk profile and investment horizon.
Be sure your insurance protection has kept pace with your needs, and that your family is protected in case of your death, critical illness, or in the event you are unable to do your job. Understand how your taxes fit into your financial plan, now and in the future, and take another look at your estate plan to ensure your financial, medical and beneficiary wishes are up-to-date.
