#1 Run a Retirement Plan Projection
Run a retirement plan projection so that you know where you are and what you need to do to get closer to YOUR goals. You should do this once a year to see if you are heading in the right direction. Use my free Retirement Check-Up Wizard here to get a general idea of where you stand with your retirement plans: http://bit.ly/RetirementCheckUp. If you want a more thorough calculation you should work with a Certified Financial Planner. They’ll have access to more sophisticated software and will look at your entire financial life. If you are working with a Certified Financial Planner you will want to revisit their projections at your annual review to account for changes in your financial life.

#2 Increase Your 401(k) Plan Contributions
For most people, setting a goal to max out your 401(k) or 403(b) plan contributions should be key. If you’re saving in a 401(k) or 403(b) and aren’t already on track to max it out, increase your contributions by 1%. Re-evaluate in 6 months and increase your contributions by another 1% until you ultimately max it out.

#3 Review Your Investment Strategy
Has anything changed over the last 6 months that would cause you to have to make changes? Births? deaths? New goals? If so, review your plan or speak to your Certified Financial Planner to help you make smart choices
