About one out of every three 65-year-olds today will live past 90, and one out of seven will live until at least age 95.*

Things to consider

The decisions you make early in retirement will inevitably affect your lifestyle for years to come. How you spend and how you choose to draw-down assets can make all the difference between financial confidence and uncertainty.

Have a plan for drawing-down assets

The sequence in which you liquidate taxable, tax-deferred, and tax-free assets can impact how long your savings last.

Think strategically about RMDs

While IRA distributions can serve as an important retirement income source, they can also be preserved for the next generation.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,** a person turning age 65 today has almost a 70% chance of needing some type of long-term care services in their lifetime, which are not covered by Medicare.

What to ask your Financial Advisor

  • Based on my investments, what’s a sustainable spending rate that I can safely plan on?
  • In addition to Social Security and my pension, are there other ways to generate guaranteed income?
  • Am I taking on the right amount of investment risk to meet my income needs and outpace inflation?
  • What should I do with my company retirement plan and/or concentrated stock?
