Retirement Planning

Jessica A. Riegel
Prof. Charles Boughton, Faculty Mentor

Retirement planning is a necessity for those that want to be financially stable after stopping work. That retirement plan looks a little different for everyone due to differing situations, present finances, and goals. A multitude of retirement accounts exist that provide different options best suited for specific investors. Employer-sponsored retirement accounts are very important to consider due to their unique benefits including defined-benefit plans and defined-contribution plans; other options include privately-run retirement accounts by multiple institutions. The role of Social Security and taxation has an important impact on retirement planning. As different retirement options are explored, bonds, stocks, and their historical returns will also be considered briefly as a large percentage of retirement accounts are comprised of these. The unknown is what makes retirement planning so difficult. COVID-19 is the perfect example of this. The impact to retirement planning as a result of the pandemic will also be examined.
