How to Protect Your Retirement Savings From a Crash

“Since the market hit rock bottom about eight years ago, it has been steadily improving, and investors have seen skyrocketing stock prices and annual returns. Unfortunately, those spectacular averages won’t last forever, and the investment pros have some pretty pessimistic predictions for the future,” according to Katie Brockman writing for The Motley Fool.
“So what can you do to protect your retirement savings in the event that the market crashes?”
1. Check that your investments are aligned with your risk tolerance
2. Don’t invest anything you’ll need within five years
3. Eliminate as much debt as possible
4. Prepare for the worst
