Retirement planning is like building a house – it needs a strong foundation. In this case, the foundation of a good retirement plan features eight specific pillars to build on – things like assets, income, and protective features that retirees need. Jon and Karyn go over what they are and how they fit into a plan to be sure your retirement goes as smoothly as possible.
Unexpected developments can derail your retirement assets – things such as kids living at home longer than anticipated, the rising cost of both college (for the kids) and long term care (for parents, or maybe yourself). Not to mention that today’s retirement strategies are different than those of a generation ago. Jon and Karyn go over these and many more scenarios that your plan should take into consideration as retirement draws closer.
