Genworth Can Help with Retirement Decisions


Disclosure: Information for this post is sourced from Genworth Financial in partnership with the SheHeard Influencer Network.

My husband and I are getting older, but that's not our reason for thinking so much about retirement these days. We've always been good planners, or so I thought, and our retirements were both in place long ago.  The thing is, mine was in place as part of the Florida Retirement System.  I now live in Michigan, so that retirement plan I so carefully crafted and nurtured does not do me a bit of good. It will not suffice even in small part for what I will need, even though I was vested in it for a good while.

That's where Genworth can help. Genworth has been around since 1871 and has every experience you will need in helping you with your financial needs. For us, that means retirement.  If you are in a similar situation, know someone who is, or could just use some reputable information on the topic, check out this article (and share if you'd like), Three Insurance Policies that Could Help Pay for Retirement to get some clarification and ideas that might help. This article is very helpful for me because it breaks down the pros and cons of some popular policy ideas, and tells you who they may or may not be good for, and why. 

I don't know exactly what we're going to do yet, but I do know something needs to be done soon, and Gemworth Financial is the first place I've turned to that offers a plethora of information that is detailed in terms I can fully study and understand.  They are a company we will continue to look to in the future while my husband and I contemplate what exactly is the right path for our individual situation.

  1. I thought about my retirement in my 20s and did hubby. We are so glad we did because now we are retired and doing well. It does take some planning and I don't see a lot of that going on in today's youth.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  2. My hubby planned early and planned well, so retirement has been a joy for us so far. And after more than a decade of having him home all day every day... I still haven't gotten tired of him!

    1. It's downright scary to think you're set (which I did) and then things change and you're not (which I'm now not).

  8. Thank you for stopping in over at my place by way of Manzanita. I am on vacation right now... so my checking the blog and posts is difficult right now. However, I do agree that everyone needs to make sure that they are set for Retirement. Or as set as they can get. I think the sands are shifting all the time due to the economy, so everyone's boat is a bit rocky!

    1. I need something more universal than what I had, that's for sure...because what if we do move again? It's one of those things I wish I'd have considered before, but what's done is done now. Thanks for stopping by.

  11. You know, my husband is completely in charge of our retirement. He seems to know all about investing and I trust him, so fingers crossed that we will be able to retire in style some day.

    1. That's awesome that you can kick back and relax (about the investing now, and during retirement later too). :)

    I can feel the uncertainty of the present economy in Robin's comment and I do completely agree with her. Making a retirement decision now is like building a house of cards and hoping the wind won't blow. Good luck to you and all the younger people faced with this dilemma right now.

  14. It is never too early to plan for retirement! Thanks for the great information. I will forward this link to my hubby since he does all the planning for us :)

  15. Great info! We are planning for our retirement but still praying for a lotto win so it can happen sooner :)

    1. As long as you're planning too (and not counting on chance), it's okay to wish for the lotto win. We do that sometimes too. ;)

      Delete
  16. Definitely something I should look at, also. Planning is NOT my middle name.

    1. We've got the college thing down, for all except one child...working on the last one. :) There's pre-paid state programs that are so reasonable when they're young!

  18. Based on how things are going I need to have a setup of my own so I'm not doing road construction at 60.

    I'm glad they have places like this to give help where it's really needed.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. I imagine road construction is hard, hot work...and not so pleasant to do at 60! ;)

      I like to come across sites like this too.
