For Retirees . . .
Addressing Concerns That They Would Outlive Their Money
Mike and Shirley retired from their jobs as a social worker and office manager two years before the recession hit.
Like so many others, they panicked and went to cash with their investments as the market plunged. They came to us concerned about whether they would out-live their money and lose the kind of retirement they had planned on.
As their CDs and bonds matured the reinvestment rates were too low to provide the cash they needed for their monthly income. They wondered:
- How can we get the income we need now?
- Is there a better way to manage our cash flow and investments going forward?
- Can we still enjoy the retirement we’ve planned on?
Shifting Focus Back To Their Goals, Values, And Their
Desired Retirement Through Financial Planning For Retirement
Our Discovery Meeting with Mike and Shirley will help them focus their attention away from current news distractions which they can’t control and back to those things that they can control: their goals, values, spending and savings patterns and clarifying the kind of retirement they want to enjoy.
The first step in our Strategic Financial Planning and Management Process centers on understanding them as a couple apart from their finances. Then, we will develop a strong sense of what matters most to them.
We assess their current situation, dependable income sources, needs, wants, and other assets. Only then will we tailor a written investment plan for them that addresses their concerns about cash flow, and their ability to sustain their retirement lifestyle. We can create a spending plan that
- Adjusts for inflation,
- Builds a cash flow reserve ladder, and
- Establishes a monitoring and review process.
