If you’re about to hit that magic retirement age, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, if you’re sweating whether or not you’ll have enough to pleasantly retire, you need to start doing your homework. Be sure you plan accordingly to not have to worry about your nest egg in the years to come.

You also can start looking at some of your assets and see if you can downsize. Do you really need that second home? Or third car? Take a look at selling off some of your commodities and investing the money in your retirement portfolio.

Keep working now. It may seem strange, but working longer now can pay off big later. People are living longer now. By staying in the job you love, you can keep earning more and saving money to enjoy later.
