Remember these key points:

  • Having a retirement strategy is critical because you may spend quite a few years in retirement.
  • When it comes to creating a retirement strategy, there’s no such thing as “one size fits all.” Everyone’s goals, needs, and situation are different.
  • Start saving now and give your money time to grow.
  • Form a retirement strategy team to help you create and fine-tune your retirement plan.
  • Consult with your military retirement counselor to learn more about your military benefits.
  • Take action now to plan your future so that you can achieve your retirement goals.
  • Review your plan and benefits periodically. Your situation may change over time.

Remember: investing always involves risk and there are no guarantees. Some investments carry more risk and more potential reward than others.
