- Rent a safe deposit box – A convenient place to store important items that would be difficult or impossible to replace.

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.
Doubling Your Money
When it comes to finances, it’s usually safe to say that the longer you invest your money, the more you’ll have. You can figure out how long it will take to double your money with the “Rule of 72,” by dividing your interest rate into 72.
EXAMPLE: Savings interest rate = 3% ~ 72 ÷ 3 = 24 ~ Money in a savings account earning 3% interest takes 24 years to double.
