While milking a cow or going on safari might add excitement to your retirement dreams, adding the following items to your financial bucket checklist can help you work toward retirement confidence:
- Will and estate plan
- Up-to-date beneficiary designations for investment, bank and insurance accounts
- Long-term care strategy
- Health care proxy
- Durable power of attorney
- Guaranteed stream of income
- Funeral plot and arrangements
Don’t worry about changing your mind concerning these matters later on. It’s important to go through these planning processes early on in retirement, knowing that you can update your plan down the road should your circumstances change.
