How Will You Pay for Your Retirement?

investment chart

Calculate your retirement savings to find out how much you will need to retire based on how long you will work and what you want to do in retirement.

Get your retirement plan back on track if you've borrowed from an IRA or taken hardship loans from a 401(k) or other employer retirement plan.

Consider career longevity and tax implications before taking loans or hardship withdrawals from your 401(k).

Know the risks before taking cash from a retirement account. Avoid penalties for taking hardship withdrawals or early withdrawals from your 401(k).

Whether you choose to keep working part-time in retirement or your finances make a phased retirement necessary, consider health care costs, reductions in pay and benefits, and impacts to your Social Security payments.
