Planning for a Long, Fulfilling Life

Where are you going in life?

LONGEVITY PLANNING

Many of today’s retirees can expect to spend 30 years or more enjoying the fruits of their labor. That’s why it’s increasingly important not simply to plan for retirement, but to plan for longevity in retirement – all of the years it might last, all of the ways your life will change and all of the events you can’t foresee.

In addition to the financial implications, retirement has life implications. Our knowledgeable and experienced team can help you sort through the possibilities and offer financial advice designed to guide you up to and through the retirement you’ve envisioned.

Ask yourself these key retirement questions:

How will you get around?

Being mobile means being independent. And retirement life brings more opportunity to go where you want whenever you want. That may help explain why transportation is the second largest expense for individuals older than 65 and accounts for about 15% of their annual expenditures, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s why we make sure to account for it as part of your long-term financial plan.

Let’s talk about:

  • How will you get to your favorite places in retirement?
  • Who will assist you if you can’t drive yourself somewhere?
  • What transportation options are available in your area?

How will you safeguard your health?

Your health and your finances are intertwined in complex ways. Most expect Medicare to pay for their healthcare expenses in retirement. But, in reality, Medicare pays only 60% of healthcare costs* – you still will have premiums, copays, and deductibles. As you age, healthcare costs can add up.

Let’s talk about:

  • Do you have an existing condition? What will treatment cost over the long term?
  • Do you know what costs Medicare will cover?
  • How will you pay for what Medicare doesn’t?
  • Have you considered Medigap?

Who will take care of you?

As we all live longer, chances are you may, at some point, provide care for a loved one or receive care yourself. Becoming a caregiver can be not only stressful, but also can have financial consequences if it requires taking time away from work. And long-term care is not covered by Medicare.

Let’s talk about:

  • Do you understand the full impact of being a caregiver?
  • How will you get the care you need as you age?
  • Should you consider long-term care insurance?

Will you have enough?

Giving yourself every opportunity to save enough for a long, fulfilling life requires careful, detailed longevity planning – strategies for saving, investing and taking withdrawals. Making the right Social Security claiming decisions is vital to optimizing your retirement income strategy.

Let’s talk about:

  • When are you planning to retire?
  • What sources of income will you have in retirement?
  • How much income you will need in retirement?
