Our Retirement Planning Process
We’ve been helping couples and individuals make this transition for over a decade and we’re dedicated to your success. When you decide to become our client, we’ll walk with you through the whole process of deciding when to retire, when to start receiving Social Security benefits, how to protect and invest your assets at this juncture, and much more.
The answer varies depending on how large the fees are on your current investments. Oftentimes rolling over multiple accounts into one investment is a smart move because it simplifies things for you and allows you to get a lower rate by investing more assets in one place. Each situation is different, but this is a question we’d love to help you answer. We would be happy to give you a free fee analysis to see how much you’re paying in management fees now and whether or not you could get a better rate. Contact us to schedule a free consultation.
The decision of when to start taking Social Security benefits is very complex. The answer varies depending on whether or not you have a company pension or annuity, how much savings you have, how you expect your investments to perform, how long you expect to live, and how much you expect to spend every year. To really give you an informed answer for your unique situation, we recommend our retirement planning services.
Hopefully you’ve been dialing back the risk in your portfolio gradually as you get nearer and nearer to retirement age. You should be doing this because the older you are, the less time you have to bounce back from a recession. A good rule of thumb is to only invest in stocks a percentage of your assets that is equal to or less than 100 minus your age. For example, if you’re 30, then you can invest 70% of your assets in the stock market with the rest in bonds, government securities, and other “safe assets.” If you’re 70, then you should invest no more than 30% of your assets in the stock market with the rest in conservative investments. This is a general rule and not a recommendation from us on your particular situation. For a more specific recommendation, contact us to hear more about our financial planning services.
