Retirement Genie

Today's app of the day is Retirement Genie.



It is inevitable that for everyone lucky enough to have a job, retirement is something important to plan for. With the life expectancy of most people increasing, having enough money and assets to survive through retirement has never been more important. It is not simply enough to pack up your desk and expect everything to be OK - instead careful planning is required, and professional help is often needed!

To get the ball rolling, a great new app has made its way to the Google Play app store - Retirement Genie. Upon starting the app, users are greeted with a simple calculation tool where a person's planned retirement age, pension amount and expenses can be inserted. From there, all that needs to occur is the 'calculate' button being pressed, and the Retirement Genie will let you know whether your savings will be enough to live on throughout what are meant to be the best years of your life.

It's quick, easy and best of all free. It is not going to be enough to plan every aspect of retirement, but it will show users whether they are on track and allow users to determine whether it is necessary to start putting away more saving, or whether to seek some further professional advice. Check it out today, and start planning for tomorrow!
