No matter your age, it’s important to balance financial priorities. However, your strategy in doing so will likely depend, in large part, on your age.
Those in their 20s and early 30s are beginning professional careers, perhaps starting families, and establishing a foundation for future growth. They face challenges relating to establishing credit, developing a budget and savings strategy, managing debt, and beginning to save for retirement. Effectively addressing these items early in life can be of great benefit to future financial success.
Those in the mid-30s and 40s face likely face different challenges. Determining a balance between saving for retirement and children’s higher education needs is often an important decision. Also important is taking steps to protecting a family’s finances with life insurance and establishing an estate plan. These items can perhaps best be addressed by establishing a relationship with a financial professional to assist with developing an appropriate strategy.
Those in their 50s and early 60s likely shift their primary focus to retirement planning and more carefully managing their investments. They often pay much closer attention to their financial affairs and seek out the assistance of a financial professional to monitor their progress. Developing and maintaining a carefully thought out plan is often a priority at this stage of life.
