How much should you save for retirement?

Knowing how much retirement savings you will need starts with knowing how much you spend to support your lifestyle today. Some expenses may go away by the time you retire, like the cost of raising kids. Others are likely to increase, like the cost of health care. Maximizing your retirement savings now may give you the best chance of living the retirement lifestyle you envision.

Rollover your 401(k).

When you rollover1 your previous employer’s 401(k) or 403(b), we can help you create a comprehensive financial plan and investment strategy with a clear vision of what you want to achieve. With a 401(k) rollover you direct the transfer of the money in your retirement account to a new plan or IRA. The IRS gives you 60 days from the date you receive an IRA or retirement plan distribution to roll it over to another plan or IRA.
