Retirement income planning is an often-overlooked step in financial planning. While some firms only focus on the wealth accumulation phase, we see retirement income planning as an essential component to planning your whole financial strategy. While many variables like inflation, rising health care costs, and long-term care are important to plan for, we customize our approach based on your needs.
Our team can help you create a retirement income plan with the goal of providing a sustainable, predictable, tax-efficient stream of income based on your age, goals, and expectations of retirement. Understanding your goals today helps create plans that maximize your returns, optimize your investments, and achieve the success you desire. Common areas where are clients ask for help are around the following questions:
- When can I retire?
- What is the best way to pay for my children’s education?
- How much cash flow can I expect to draw from my investments?
- Can I afford a second/vacation home?
- How much can I expect to leave my heirs?
