Maximize Your Contributions

At this stage, many people are in their peak earning years. Make sure you're funding your employer's retirement plan as well as your Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs). Once you turn 50, you're allowed to contribute even more to your Traditional or Roth IRA and to your 401(k) each year.

Reconsider Your Risk Levels

Look at the risk level of your investment and retirement portfolios. Because you have a shorter timeframe to retirement, perhaps consider reallocating some of your funds into more conservative investments or options such as life annuities, which can provide a guaranteed flow of income year after year in retirement.

Create a Retirement Distribution Report

It's an analysis of your total retirement income needs, focusing first on basic expenses. Then we'll look at your expected income, including guaranteed income sources such as Social Security, pensions and annuities, and offer ideas to help fill any gaps.

Ask your State Farm agent about whether a free Retirement Distribution Report is right for you.

Have 401(k)s? Consider Rolling Them Over

If you've changed jobs and left money in various employer sponsored plans, there could be many advantages to consolidating and rolling them over into an IRA from State Farm. These may include more investment options, easier management and savings on fees.
