Once you’ve got your money planned out for your retirement years, you can think even further ahead. It’s not the cheeriest of thoughts, but you do need to decide what will happen to your wealth when you die.

If you haven’t already, it’s time to make a will and perhaps even think about who you want to have Power of Attorney, should you need help managing your affairs.
It’s also worth checking if your pension nominations are all present and correct. According to research published in the Financial Adviser, more than 60% of people who took part in one survey said the details of who they wanted their pension benefits going to were out of date. By making sure this is right now, should anything happen to you, it will help speed up the time it takes for the money to reach your loved ones.
There’s certainly lots to think about, but once it’s done you can relax and enjoy all the good times ahead.
