When you are thinking about retiring, you need to estimate expenses. Although it is impossible to know exactly how much you will be spending, you can get a good sense by looking at current expenses and projecting ahead. You need to consider "must haves" like groceries, utilities, transportation, healthcare and housing. Further, you have to consider the other things you will want such as traveling, hobbies, dining out, vacation home, new vehicles and recreational equipment. Not only do you need to consider the must-haves, and the nice-to-haves, but you also need to think about emergency expenses such as major home damage or large health issues. We recommend that our clients put aside about between three and six months living expenses for these scenarios, depending on their exact situation.
