When do you want to retire?
There are some people who want to work until the day they die. They say, “Pull me out of the office and drive me right to the cemetery.” There are other people who want to stop working in their 60s, or even their 50s, or even earlier! Regardless of your preferences as to when you retire, the inescapable fact is that everyone has a thought and a dream as to how they want to live in retirement, even if it’s only a very short retirement. Our job isn’t to tell you what your dream should be – our job is to try to build you a path that brings that dream a little closer to reality.
Retirement looks different for everybody. Retirement plans should be different, too.
We look to identify your income needs, not just in terms of how much money you need, but also when you need it, and any fluctuations that may occur because of events that happen in your life. We’re talking about the important stuff here – weddings, grandkids, college, and so forth. They’re the things you write checks for, the things you’ve worked a lifetime to afford. Our retirement planning process takes into account that when you retire, it’s not enough to say that you need a certain amount of money each year to live on. Rather, we have to figure out how you want to live, and then build a retirement plan that focuses on what you want to do, when you want to do it rather than making you live your life based on a fixed number.
If you’re trying to figure out whether or not you can retire, you’re not alone.
We’ve built our company around helping people decide when to retire and stay retired. Talk to a member of our team!
