FUEL FOR RETIREMENT

We read an article the other day from a library of information we have access to and thought it would interest you to know that it discussed “higher interest rates, of course, mean higher payout rates on annuities.” We like fixed annuities because they can provide an income you can’t outlive, something that is fuel for retirement when longevity is on the rise. Call us if you are interested in exploring options like this. We’re always here to help.

BASICS AND BALANCE

There is a lot to be said about balance, especially when no one knows what the future holds. “Balance is also important in your financial life: between reward and risk, nest egg preservation and growth.” Call us if you would like some ideas on how to achieve these goals as you look into the future.

SOCIAL SECURITY EARLIER?

The article I thought to share with you this week tells us that ” If you will celebrate your 62nd birthday in 2017 or soon after, you’re in the vanguard of a big change in Social Security: Starting with people hitting that milestone in January, the full retirement age (FRA)—that is, when you can collect your entire earned benefit—will creep up from 66 to 67 in two-month increments over the next six years.” What is interesting is that as the FRA goes up, for every age along that line, you receive a smaller benefit then you would have before. The question being asked is should you collect sooner or wait? And what do you do to supplement that smaller benefit when you are no longer employed? Call us, we’re always here to help walk you through the choices.

Fixed Indexed annuities (FIAs) can help make the next big thing possible.” Are you leaving things to chance? Call us if you’d like to get your nest egg back.

THE RISKS AND PROCESS OF RETIREMENT

I came across the results of a survey conducted online of Americans ages 45 to 80 the purpose of which was to evaluate Americans’ “awareness of potential financial risks in retirement, how this awareness impacts the management of their finances with respect to retirement, and how Americans are managing the process of leaving the workforce.” The results are interesting and may help you better plan for your future. Call us if you’d like to review some options for income in retirement that you may not have thought of. We’re always here to help.
