The ups and downs of Earning an Income

Unless you’re independently wealthy, you will probably work to earn a living. If you’re fortunate, you’ll work at a series of jobs that not only support your lifestyle and savings goals, but also provide personal challenge and fulfillment.

Make sure your retirement savings keeps pace with your career moves.

In this section, we’ll explore the ups and downs of employment, from getting your first job to changing jobs to losing jobs and even working in retirement. You’ll learn how establishing good financial habits when you first start out can create additional income opportunities through the years. We’ll explore how you can protect your retirement savings when you change jobs, which many workers will do an average of 11 times during their peak earning years.1 We’ll provide guidance about how to deal with a job loss, including protecting your benefits, and ways to turn a job loss into a life opportunity. Finally, we’ll illustrate how going back to work after you retire can not only supplement your investment income, but also provide personal fulfillment and enrichment in your senior years.
