National Debt Relief shared in an article published on May 18, 2014 the importance of factoring in life expectancy when planning finances for the future.The article titled “Is Life Expectancy Part of Financial Future Planning?” explains how mortality can play a key part in financial management.
The article shares four points in integrating life expectancy into financial planning.
The first one is planning like an optimist. Taking the belief of being able to live a long life would essentially program the mind to save financially up to that point. This helps in putting in more than what is actually needed. Setting realistic target dates would help as well because unrealistic ones would tend to backfire on the individual. Planning financially around the target of living up to unrealistic number of years might put undue stress on the individual of having to save more.
The article discussed as well the importance of starting early when it comes to financial planning and execution. The sooner a person understands how financial management works, the earlier an individual can get started. There are smart financial activities for every age that can eventually lead towards nurturing proper financial handling skills. Piggy bank for kids and saving allowances for teens are some of the activities to start with.
Getting older means having to face numerous medical circumstances from the simple cases all the way to the more severe ones. There is no way to predict what an individual’s health will be down the line but turning a blind eye about it will not help. Regular check-ups and making an effort to know the family history will go a long way in addressing this concern.
Regular check-ups can catch medical conditions that are just starting to creep up. The sooner they are diagnosed, the better the chances for treatment. Listing down family diseases can help guide medical professionals in diagnosis.
The article also explains the topic of inheritance. More than planning for life expectancy, inheritance is another important factor in financial planning. Having a target date of retirement age can give an individual a clear goal to aim for. But the desire to leave behind specific material possessions to family members and loved ones can affect that goal.
If the objective is to leave behind a house and lot for the children, an individual would need to factor in buying a property early on in life to be able to pay for it in due time. And, after some time, plan the documents to be able give the property to family member,friend or charitable institutions.
The article also discussed what retirees often look for in retirement areas when moving to a new place is an option. Tax is on the top of the list. Retirees want to know how much the state is assessing and prefer to live on the those that charge the smallest. Quality of health care is another important consideration. Retirees puts a premium on having access to an efficient healthcare system.
