As Americans, we plan for retirement from the time we begin working. Every time we clock in, every time we file our taxes, every time we contribute to our 401k and IRA accounts – we are planning and creating a cushion for the golden years. However, something that most do not consider to work on is reducing their debt before hitting the retirement finish line.
When we retire, our income changes considerably. Some individuals can go from making a comfortable living wage to making around $1200.00 a month. This can affect your disposable income and make paying regular creditor bills difficult. If it is possible to plan ahead and payoff some expenses, it is wise to do so. This will create some peace of mind later on and help you live off your new, fixed income easily and stress-free
However, we all know that sometimes it is not as easy to pay off larger expenses such as a mortgage or even all of your credit card debt before retirement.
