Three Phases of Retirement Planning
Retirement planning is part of the foundation of your financial life. It is the roadmap that will guide your decisions as you transition from one phase to the next. In the absence of an effective plan, you risk making decisions that undermine the achievement of your financial goals. That occurs because you do not have a clear strategy for achieving your goals.
If you are like most Americans, when you retire, you take on the responsibility of managing your financial future. Based on rising longevity this future could last 30 or more years. Consequently, the decisions you make when you transition from working to retirement will have a major impact on your financial security later in life.
It is critical that you put the right retirement in place as soon as possible. You cannot retrieve lost years and bad planning can have catastrophic consequences.
For these reasons, Prime Wealth believes you should pay more attention to retirement planning and in particular to distribution planning. If you haven’t had the success you expected, we have the tools to help you chart a better course. Get that right early in retirement and it is more likely that the money will be there late in life when you need it the most.
Our Three-Phase Approach
We help you plan your retirement and invest your assets.
It stands to reason the sooner you put a plan in place, the higher the probability the assets will be there later in life.
That is why we have a three-phase planning approach. You want a seamless transition from one phase to the next. If the transition is not seamless you run the risk of excess expense, tax liability, and stress.
The three phases of retirement include:
Our starting point is based on your particular circumstance. You could be late in your working years, in transition, or already retired. Our retirement planning process can be adapted to your particular situation.
At Prime Wealth, our planning focuses on longevity (since we are living longer lives).
Planning is a process that is impacted by change. That is why we will stress-test your plans to make sure we address the “what ifs” that life can throw your way. The end result is an evolving plan that helps you feel confident about your future.
