Retirement is one of those stages in life everyone is aware of but often put aside in the back of their minds.

There are numerous reasons why people choose not to think about retirement; perhaps it is a reminder of time and the fleeting nature of youth, or perhaps it is the change of lifestyle that comes from reduced income.

Compounding this is a small survey by the Association of Financial Institutions Pension Funds (DPLK) in 2019, which found that 90 percent of Indonesian millennial workers are not ready to face retirement as they have no plans or funds set aside.

Again, there are many reasons why this is the case, but one of them is the constant feeling of the fear of missing out (FOMO). Adapted to a certain lifestyle, this causes people to always want to experience the latest trends and spend their money on temporary objects and experiences rather than long-term ones.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with this kind of lifestyle, but it would be much better for millennials to complete their financial planning, especially during these uncertain times, for the peace of mind it brings.

When is the best time to prepare for retirement financial planning? As early as possible, and all the while starting by choosing the most trusted and experienced partner.
