Are You Retirement Ready or Not?

Are you confident that your retirement savings will last as long as you do?

Average life expectancy for retirees continues to rise and a 30+ year retirement is becoming more common. A study found that the number one fear of Americans in retirement is running out of money. Can you relate?

15 years before you retire and 5 years after are considered the Retirement Red Zone! Some of the issues you need to be addressing in this time period are:

  • Longevity Risk
  • Sequential Risk
  • Market Risk
  • Catastrophic Illness Risk
  • Inflation
  • Taxes
  • Fees
  • Beneficiary & Legacy Planning

Here are some of the topics we cover in our planning meetings:

  • Do you have a financial strategy to create an income and preserve capital for a 30+ year retirement?
  • How to identify and solve for potential income gaps in your current retirement strategy
  • Does asset allocation and the 4% withdrawal rule still work in today’s economic environment?
  • How a “buy and hold” and sequence risk could potentially jeopardize your retirement security.
  • Do you have “Lazy Money” and if so, how to put it to work!
  • Social Security…the importance of planning and coordinating benefits with your spouse and/or other sources of income
  • “Big Picture” considerations when electing Social Security Income and how you may be able to increase benefits by up to 75%.
  • Discuss the differences between Retail and Institutional money managers, and what this means for you and your retirement strategy
  • Does your current financial professional have a fiduciary duty to ensure his/her activities are in your best financial interest?

Remember the game we played as kids, “Ready or Not Here I Come”? Well the day will come when you will want to retire, are you ready?
