Retiring After a Career of Self-Employment?
New Video from VSP Vision Care is Here to Help You Plan for the Transition
Rancho Cordova, Calif. (Nov. 27, 2017) — For the self-employed, retirement looks different than for the rest of the workforce. Do you sell the business? Do something else entirely? Perhaps even some grand combination of all the above?
No matter what, there’s one thing you need to do for sure: Plan! And a new video from VSP Individual Vison Plans can show you where to start:
Finances: Start gathering up all the information you can about where you have money invested and what your income will look like as you move into retirement. This includes Social Security.
Insurance: Determine what coverage you have and where there are gaps. Adjust as necessary, and don’t forget vision coverage. As you age you are at a higher risk to chronic eye disorders such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. A comprehensive eye exam can also uncover symptoms of significant health problems — including hypertension, high cholesterol and diabetes. Individual plan offerings can provide an affordable way to keep tabs on your eye health and overall wellbeing in retirement.
Housing: Evaluate your housing and location decisions looking forward. Consider different places you might want to live – including cities or states you might want to move to.
Your Business: Begin thinking about what you want to do with your business. Will you sell it, get a partner, pass it to your children, or move it with you to another state?
