(ken) in today's consumer watch... karin caifa has a look at three little-known retirement tips experts say you shouldn't overlook. the more you save-- the better chance you have at retiring on time.but according to financial experts, there are three keys to retirement that people don't usually talk about. the first is paying off your mortgage. alok deshpande, smartpath financial: "for the average family, that is equivalent to 300,000 dollars more in their retirement plan. so, think about if i could just hand you 300,000 and add it to your retirement plan, you would take it."the second overlooked retirement advice is to incorporate social security. experts say it should still be part of your planning.... despite concerns about whether or not it will be there or whether the government can still fund it.
alok deshpande, smartpath financial: "for most people, it's about 60% of their retirement expenses. so, if i'm getting a check from social security for life, and its covering 60% of my expenses, that's meaningful." and three-- forget "the number" stop worrying so much about the dollar amount you want to hit before retirement. instead, experts say focus on pouring 20% of your gross income into retirement, whether that's going into an i- r-a, 401k or index fund. alok deshpande, smartpath financial: "if you can get there by 45, you will be on track to retire at 65. you will be on track, you can get there. you have to have the wherewithal to say okay i'm going to do it."for consumer watch-i'm karin caifa.
