Continue to Invest
If you have a large sum of money in your retirement savings that you grew through investments, do not stop now. If you remain aggressive in your investing habits, you can quickly increase your wealth.
Start a Business
Many people get bored with all of their newly found free time in retirement. It is the perfect time to start your own business. Your business could be a passion project or a consulting practice based on your previous career experience. Starting a business can be lucrative if you hit the correct market.
Purchase Life Insurance
To make sure your heirs and beneficiaries are taken care of, purchasing a life insurance policy is a great choice. Life insurance can act as an income replacement. Permanent or whole life insurance is used to enhance an estate. Buying permanent life insurance at an early age, the premium you pay can turn into a multi million dollar payout for your estate. This type of life insurance can build cash value over time that can be used as an asset to enhance your wealth.
Start working again
While the point of retirement is to stop working and enjoy your golden years, many people choose to go back to work. If you keep working after the age of 65 into your late 70s or even 80s creates extra years of income. You do not have to go back to a full time or strenuous job, but even working part time somewhere can provide income in addition to your retirement income. If you continue to invest your income, you could grow several hundred thousand in savings. Especially deferring your retirement income and continuing to contribute to your retirement savings will allow incredible compounding.
Cut back expenses
Cutting out some unnecessary expenses will allow you to save money and spend less of your fixed income. Some options to take advantage of to reduce expenses are moving to a state with lower taxes, moving to a smaller house, using Medicare insurance, and properly planning your taxes.
