It’s no secret many pre-retirees are woefully unprepared for retirement. And now that retirements, along with life expectancies, are lasting longer than ever, the challenge of stretching retirement assets to the max is becoming more and more difficult.
I’d like to refer all members this week to a report from The Weiss Center For International Financial Research at Wharton.
This is a good write-up that talks about things people need to hear instead of what they want to hear. Wharton has always been a credible source of information since it is an educational institution dedicated to factual research.
The report mentions that more than half of people approaching retirement have not saved enough and it also suggests that individuals who spend time planning are much more likely to be financially stable throughout their retirement years.
The keys to hitting your retirement target date are protecting what you have now and saving as much as possible until then. Have you considered annuities as a way of decreasing the burden?
Understanding annuities is why this site was created but placing them inside a well-designed retirement plan takes expert guidance.
Use this site as an informational resource and be sure to call or email me when you are ready to stop taking chances with your financial longevity.
