Why is retirement planning important to you?
I want to be able to live comfortably after I retire and have saved enough to enjoy the hobbies I love.
What’s something you’ve learned about your retirement planning needs?
The main thing I’ve learned from speaking with Jason is that starting early is always a great thing. Even if I’m not putting a large amount into my retirement plans, it still adds up in the long run.
How is Modern Woodmen helping you plan?
I have a Modern Woodmen Roth IRA, Traditional IRA and life insurance plan. Jason also helped me set up a mutual fund. I place a small amount in that each month for an emergency fund. All these things were new to me when we first started planning a couple of years ago. Now, with Jason’s help, I have a better understanding of where my money is going and how we are growing it.
Most single, young men are focused on enjoying the good life. Austin has set his priorities on relishing life while securing his financial future. I’m helping him develop a well-balanced, diversified financial portfolio, incorporating protection, savings and retirement planning.
