Setting Retirement Goals
Will you have enough money in retirement to cover your expenses plus enjoy your life?
Life expectancy in the United States is at an all-time high (CDC.gov), and because we live longer, there is a greater possibility that we might outlive our retirement savings. Americans’ number one retirement fear is running out of investments and savings.
Figuring out the best way to make your savings stretch over the next 25 to 30 years is not only confusing, but it can be overwhelming, too. That’s why we offer a holistic approach to retirement planning and income strategies. And strategy starts by setting your retirement goals; answering questions such as:
- What expenses will go away when I retire (such as expenses associated with your daily commute)?
- What new expenses will I incur when I retire?
- What expenses will stay the same?
- Do I plan to travel in retirement? How often? Where?
- What else do I plan to do in retirement? Move? Buy or sell a home?
- What major purchases will I make in retirement (such as an RV, boat, new car)?
Retirement Investment Options
Insurance products like annuities can provide a steady and reliable stream of income for the rest of your life, while investment options can help create opportunities for long-term growth. Components of an investment strategy might include:
- Defined-benefit plans
- Employee stock ownership plans
- IRAs (Roth, traditional, simple, self-directed)
- Profit-sharing plans
- SEP plans (simplified employee pension)
Lundervold Financial can help you incorporate both insurance products and investment options into your financial strategy, to put you on a path to the retirement lifestyle you want. In addition to understanding your retirement goals, we take the time to get to know you so we can match you with a strategy that fits your level of comfort with risk.
We also make sure our clients understand their retirement investment options. So many times, financial advisors use a lot of terms that they are well familiar with, yet they forget to explain jargon when they’re speaking with clients. The financial advisors at Lundervold Financial will take time to get to know you. We want to know what you know, so we can fill in the gaps when it comes to understanding your options in retirement.
Financial Planning for Retirement
Once we understand your retirement goals and you select options for retirement planning and investing, we put your plan into action with our Blueprint for Financial Clarity. Your blueprint will help ensure that your expenses can be paid month to month, reliably and predictably, for the rest of your life. The plan includes:
- Social Security optimizations
- Income and expense analysis
- Inflation planning
- Spousal planning
A retirement plan or strategy is not something we “set and forget.” Our team helps to manage your portfolio, and we check in with you regularly to review it with you. You’ll discuss whether anything has changed in your life, including your goals, expenses and income.
