Do you have any of the following?
Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)
Life insurance policies
Stocks, bonds, other financial instruments
Retirement plans through your employment (e.g. 401k, defined benefit plan, 403(b), military retirement, federal retirement, etc.)
Do you know who the beneficiaries of these assets are in the event you die? Often, the beneficiaries of these assets are governed by beneficiary designation forms. If you are completing your estate plan or have been recently divorced, you need to review your beneficiary designations.

It's a reality you have to consider when saving and planning for retirement.
