Aspects Covered Under The Immortal Retirement
Retirement Planning is complicated. We are here help you design a retirement that not only lasts longer than you, but it also covers the different critical areas as seen below.
How much do you need, net of tax, to be able to retire? If markets go down, can you still afford that lifestyle?
Are you still diversified for growth, like when you held a job and had a paycheck coming in? If so, it may be time to consider adjusting your portfolio and investments.
If taxes are relatively low and national debt is historically high, do you believe taxes will go up? If so, do you have a plan to anticipate the possible change?
Can you afford the cost of declining health? Some will self-insure while others may choose other options. What will you do?
Do you have an updated trust? A great way to ruin family relationships is to leave it to them to figure it out. Are your documents in order?
Are you able to keep up with politicians shifting the retirement landscape? We are here to guide you every step of the way.
