Financial Moves To Make When Considering Early Retirement

June 18, 2018

Many of us wish to retire early so as to start living on our own terms in a life of leisure and peace.

This may sound like a dream but can be achieved with methodical planning and a disciplined approach.

Here is what you need to do.

  1. Allocate your budget
    From time to time we all tend to splurge and spend a majority of our income on things that are unnecessary.
    To avoid this, it is best to plan out your monthly income and allocate it into different expenses like phone and electricity bills etc. and most importantly in different savings. The habit of budget allocation will discipline us and cut down on expenditure
  2. Increase your allocation of money towards savings
    If you wish to retire early and in luxury we need to change our habit of just saving whatever little we have and allocate a major portion of our income towards Retirement Funds.
    This can only be achieved by careful planning and dedication.
  3. Clear all your debts
    For a peaceful retirement, it is important that you pay off all your debts as early possible and do it in a prudent way.
    This can be done either by increasing your EMI, paying them in a lump sum or best contacting your lender to restructure your loan.
  4. Invest in post-retirement pension scheme
    When we retire at 60 we depend a lot on our savings and thus require a steady pension scheme to cover up our monthly expenses.
    Also, if you plan to retire early you need to have allocated more amount towards this monthly pension as you will have more years to cover post retirement.
    Hence, invest in a good pension scheme that will factor in your plan to retire early and give you a larger duration of pension cover to fulfil your needs.
    HDFC is one India’s leading banks and provide people with amazing post retirement schemes, which not only takes care of their funds wisely, but also gives them good returns upon maturity.
  5. Investment
    The biggest factor to look at for a good retirement is investment, thus you make sure you invest in SIPs and Mutual Funds and start as early as possible, so you have accumulated a hefty sum of money when you retire.
    So, allocate your savings wisely and start investing early to have life of luxury post retirement.
