Don’t Be a Statistic

Far too many workers are feeling less confident in their ability to live comfortably in retirement.

    I’m here to change that.

    As you approach retirement, your focus shifts from saving for retirement to planning for retirement income. This begins with a comprehensive retirement income plan that includes the following components:

      • Determine your income preferences and select a strategy that matches them.
      • Ensure steady and reliable retirement income and maximize long-term spending power.
      • Create a retirement income protection strategy that manages the impact of the unique risks involved in retirement.
      • Develop a strategy for claiming Social Security benefits that creates efficiencies to increase long-term spending potential.
      • Decide what healthcare decisions to make based on a well-developed plan to hedge contingent healthcare costs.
      • Plan for long-term care needs and develop a strategy to manage their impact.
      • Tax planning sensitive to portfolio growth potential, increased long-term wealth, and higher spending potential.
