How do I prepare for retirement?
It is never too late to plan for retirement. However, it is better for the individual to start a retirement program when he/she is young. A number of issues that need to be considered are age, objectives, and what type of vehicle to use to accomplish your goal. A real issue is the type of risk you want to assume.
A happy and fulfilling retirement means different things to different people. Decisions that are made determine a change that affects one’s peace of mind.
There has to be an analysis of your assets as well as your liabilities. One crucial thing is a determination of when you want to collect Social Security. Of course, later is better. Finally, you need to take stock of your protection.

An Individual Retirement Account is a savings account, where the money is tax-deferred until you reach 59 1/2 years of age, at which time your IRA must be cashed out or moved into a fixed or variable annuity account.
A fixed annuity is an annuity which is a savings account that has a fixed interest rate guaranteed.
A variable annuity is an annuity, of course, that pays a variable interest rate that can be put into the stock market, but it has no guarantee.
