BUILDING RESILIENT RETIREMENTS
That last a lifetime.
RETIREMENT IS BUILT ON INCOME
With all the complicated jargon, talking heads, and stacks of fees for useless products, you might feel like there's a lot going against you as a conservative investor.
Worried about retiring early?
Not sure how much you will be taxed on your retirement income?
Did you buy one of those tricky indexed annuities and not sure if you need it?
Maybe you're just interested in getting a second opinion about how your advisor is approaching your retirement needs?
THE NUMBERS DON'T LIE, IT'S TIME TO DO RETIREMENT PLANNING DIFFERENTLY
49% OF WOMEN FEAR ENDING UP BROKE AND HOMELESS.
When a typical couple experiences a death of one of the two spouses, it’s usually the man by about 5 years. When that happens, hopefully life insurance is in place that will provide you with a tax-free death benefit that will help you meet your income needs and allow you to maintain the same lifestyle that you have worked your whole life to achieve. If there is not enough life insurance in place or no life insurance in place, it makes any missteps in managing your retirement nest egg that much more important. You will need to come up with solutions that address the fact that you will be down to one Social Security check. The good news is that you get to keep the higher of the two checks. The bad news is that the lower of the two checks will go away. Something else that needs to be considered is that the lower tax bracket you enjoyed by being married, filing your taxes jointly, is not going to be the case anymore. You may have to pay more taxes because you are now single.
25% OF PEOPLE BELIEVE THEY NEED AT LEAST $1,000,000 TO RETIRE.
Do you think you need over $1,000,000 to retire on? Is this number higher for you or lower? You actually don't need a million dollars to retire, and your retirement is really based on the amount of income your portfolio gives you, not returns. So, do you know how much income your Retirement Savings will bring you?
