DENVER, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GoldRetiree.com announces a new 20-point retirement protection checklist to help retirees protect their retirement savings. The checklist is an important aid for retirees to better understand the ever-present risks to their retirement savings and investments.
"A wealthy and relaxed retirement is under threat from many different directions," says Paul Hanson, editor and founder at GoldRetiree.com. "Investors can lose money in a financial market crash, savings can be eroded by expensive medical bills or a real estate collapse can destroy your personal wealth. These are just three of the risks faced by retirees every year."
Gold Retiree decided to help by publishing a 20-point retirement protection checklist as a quick and easy reference for retirees and those planning to retire. The retirement protection checklist can be downloaded for free and the simple, easy to read format helps investors identify where their retirement plan is at risk. The checklist includes topics such as mutual funds, 401(K), IRA, ETFs, stocks, bonds, taxes and personal finance.
"Protecting your retirement has never been more important," explains Hanson. "There are many threats to retirement savings - the challenge is to know what are the risks and to be prepared. Our checklist is designed to help."
The checklist also covers risks associated with precious metals. Ownership of gold bullion is known for providing investors with protection against the downside effects of a financial crisis. However, if a retiree does not store the gold correctly, set up the correct legal entity or if they buy the wrong type of gold then they may not be protected at all. Hanson adds "The mission at GoldRetiree.com is to help retirees better understand how to invest in gold for retirement."
In conclusion, Hanson explains "Our hope for the retirement protection checklist is that investors use it to have an informed talk with their family, financial planners, accountants and lawyers to better protect their retirement years. We think this could be the most important checklist of an investor's life."
