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.

Watch your spending

After decades of saving, it’s only natural to want to splurge. Spending too much too soon could jeopardize your future.

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.

Plan for potential LTC costs

Over 70% of people age 65 or older will need long-term care at some point in their life, which is 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?
