At Valley Schools, we want to make sure all of our school district employees are taken care of and ready for the future. Staying healthy is a key part in having a successful retirement. Thinking about retirement can be stressful, or, it can ease your mind. No matter which side of the spectrum you are on, it is important that you have a strategy in place for the future. Here are a few strategies you may want to consider when preparing for retirement:
Have Other Options Besides Your Pension
If you have maximized your pension, you are on the right track. However, sometimes it is not enough to get you through the standard you are used to living. Unexpected financial situations occur even in retirement. Having another option such as a Roth IRA can be useful for a tax-advantaged savings account.
Look for Professional Advice
You may think you have your financials handled properly, but it’s always good to seek professional advice. Retirement accounts, regulations, and specifications can get complicated! Check with your Human Resources or Benefits Office prior to retirement to see if they offer classes or one-on-one financial counseling or retirement services.
Being active, eating nutritious foods, and regularly going to doctor check-ups can put you on the right path to start your post-work journey. Valley Schools has programs, like Wellstyles, to assist you in meeting your health and wellness goals, ensuring an active, bright future!
Valley Schools cares about the future of our employees and we want you to feel healthy, happy, and secure. Having the right health plan for you today, helps you to have a healthy retirement tomorrow. Contact us today to learn more.
