The money they had invested for their retirement days is being consumed to meet their daily needs owing to this totally unexpected Wuhan virus that has spread like a wildfire.

Time to Rebuild Retirement Savings or Wait?

As the world is still battling with this grave situation, you must consider rebuilding your retirement savings. After all, it is extremely essential to secure your future and lead a stress free life as you grow old. If you have once again managed to secure a stable income and your finances are already back on track then it is suggested to invest a small percentage of your earning. Some amount can be saved each month and invested smartly to reap good returns. This task must be taken seriously and started without any delay. The savings made today will not only secure you financially during your retirement days but can also come handy in case any unexpected situation arises in future. 

However, if you are still struggling to find a stable source of income and do not have enough cash flow then it doesn’t make sense to make investment. Although you must spend your money wisely and save some amount each month however it is better off in your savings account so that you can use it easily whenever need be. You can consider investing for your retirement once the pandemic situation gets stabilized and you start earning well.
