Got enough money to retire?

Globe and Mail Update

Ask actuary Norm Collins your questions on saving for retirement

We all want to retire some day. But how do you know if you’ll have enough socked away? How can you figure out what your expenses will be and what your pension will bring in? And will you still be carrying debt in your golden years?

Ask Norm Collins, actuary and founder of Collins Financial Consulting, your questions. He’ll be online at noon (ET). You can send in a question in advance [sverma@globeandmail.com], or simply join the discussion at noon by clicking on the live blog box below.

Mr. Collins believes it’s important to keep an eye on your financial situation and strike a reasonable balance between spending, paying down debt and saving for your nest egg.

Please note that Mr. Collins is not a financial planner or financial adviser and cannot advise you on asset allocation. Instead, he can discuss the importance of monitoring your financial circumstances and suggest expense management and saving techniques.
