With Recent Interest Rate Increases, Here Is How the Federal Reserve Impacts Your Retirement

Since the Federal Reserve is the central bank of the United States, it has a significant impact on the economy. And this means your retirement planning process, too!

Here are three ways the Federal Reserve can impact retirement planning:

1. Interest rates

The Federal Reserve sets interest rates, which can have a big impact on retirement savings. When interest rates are low, it’s easier to save money because you’re earning more interest on your savings. However, when interest rates are high, it’s more difficult to save money because you’re earning less interest on your savings.

2. Inflation

The Federal Reserve also has a role in managing inflation. When inflation is high, it can erode the value of your retirement savings. This is because your money won’t buy as much as it used to.

3. Stock market

The Federal Reserve can also impact the stock market. When the stock market is doing well, it’s easier to build your retirement savings. However, when the stock market is doing poorly, it can be more difficult to build your retirement savings.
