Retirement is one of the most important life events many of us will ever experience. From both a personal and financial perspective, realizing a comfortable retirement is an incredibly extensive process that takes sensible planning and years of persistence. Even once it is reached, managing your retirement is an ongoing responsibility that carries well into one’s golden years.
While all of us would like to retire comfortably, the complexity and time required in building a successful retirement plan can make the whole process seem nothing short of daunting. However, it can often be done with fewer headaches (and financial pain) than you might think – all it takes is a little homework, an attainable savings and investment plan, and a long-term commitment.
Retirement annuities are an excellent way to save for your retirement because your contributions are tax deductible – within limits – and you cannot access your capital before you retire. Netsure, through Old Mutual, offers retirement annuities as well as a preservation fund which is an ideal place to park the proceeds of your employer’s pension or provident fund should you resign or be retrenched.
