The freedom to live the retirement lifestyle of your choice with more time to spend with your friends and family can make your retirement years truly enjoyable. However, this is not the time to become complacent about your financial initiatives. Stay open to new ideas and opportunities to leverage your money, even if you are satisfied with your products and their performance.
Here are some ways Clearfield Bank & Trust can help you fortify your financial position during your retirement years:
Join our Chairman's Club - exclusively for those individuals age 50 or better.
Convenient Services – Conserve time, money and paper with CBT Bank’s convenient online banking, online bill pay and e-statements.
Leave a legacy with a trust – Our Trust Management Services are intended for many people at many levels, and we can help you create the legacy you want and administer your assets according to your wishes.
Decisions about the disposition of your estate, a living will, burial and funeral arrangements can be made now so your wishes will be known and your family will be relieved of making important decisions under duress.
A convenient place to store important items that would be difficult or impossible to replace. CBT Bank’s safe deposit boxes offer privacy and in most cases, greater security than keeping your valuables and important documents elsewhere. Additionally, some insurance companies charge lower insurance premiums on valuables kept in a bank's safe deposit box instead of at home.
Tips for Effective Financial Management
- Take advantage of senior discounts wherever you can, and don’t be shy in asking for them.
Do not invest with someone you don't know. Scams targeted at retirees abound. Your investment opportunities should be carefully researched
and verified by reputable professionals.
- Be informed. From your investments to your insurance you’ll want to audit your current portfolio and policies and make the necessary changes to reflect your needs and preferences as a retiree.
- Create a complete and detailed listing of your financial, investment, insurance and trust products and put a copy in your safe deposit box.
