…you have to work. To pay bills, cover your rent, provide for your family, and save for your future. Most of us don’t have a choice in the matter. But you do have control over some things, such as:
- Maximizing your income by taking advantage of your employer’s benefits that can lower your current income tax liability.
- Understanding and utilizing your employer’s benefits that may not lower your taxes, but are valuable to you, like group life and disability insurance, pre-paid legal services, or a company match on your 401(k) contributions.
- Supplementing your employer’s group benefits by identifying where they may be insufficient to meet your current needs, circumstances, and budget.
- Preparing for the unexpected by securing life and disability insurance, formalizing your estate plan, and establishing a sufficient emergency fund for you and your family.
- Saving for your retirement by committing some of your income every year to a retirement account – whether or not your employer offers a group retirement plan.
Working is for today’s expenses and tomorrow’s future goals. Achieving these goals requires patience, focused hard work, and discipline. You can get there from here.
