Whether you are already retired, retiring soon or retirement is years away, to live well in retirement depends on how carefully you plan, save and invest. It starts with an appropriate retirement money management plan, and requires on-going review of your financial situation and goals, and the discipline to stick to your strategy.
Regardless of whether you started investing for retirement when you were young or if you're playing catch-up now, taking part in tax-deferred savings opportunities, like those available in the American Conference of Cantors Retirement Plan, a 403(b) Qualified Church Plan, may be one way to assist you in achieving your goals.
