Use a Retirement Planning Tool to Educate and Inform Yourself

Do you need a retirement planning tool? Do you feel a bit lost when you think about retirement planning?

Don't worry, most people do. But you can educate and inform yourself by using such a planning retirement tool.

Even that is easier said than done. You can spend hours trying every planning tool you can find. And the surprise is that these tools often contradict each other and often do not deliver the same results.

I can't claim that I tried every retirement planning tool available, but I investigated quite a few. On this Website you'll find what I learned. Some tools are my personal favorites, but I realize what works for me might not work for you.

Most financial planning software offers a retirement planning tool. The software is typically not free, but many employers make it freely available to their employees.

I cannot emphasize enough that these retirement planning tools are mere tools and for educational purposes only. You cannot rely on it for your retirement planning decisions. You'll need a qualified advisor for that. But you'll be better informed, and better prepared, to retain control of your retirement planning.

My research on the subject of a retirement planning tool showed that different people have different terms for virtually the same tool or objective.
