1. Charting the Destination

Our journey begins by gaining a deep understanding of your retirement aspirations. Key questions may include:

  • What is your ideal retirement age?
  • Would part-time work be an option?
  • What hobbies or activities do you intend to pursue during retirement?
  • Is buying a second home for the winter months part of your plan?
  • Are you considering relocating to another state?
  • Is downsizing an option if it offers more financial freedom?
  • Do you want to leave a legacy?
  • What keeps you up at night?

2. Mapping the Route

Armed with a clear picture of your retirement destination, we chart the most effective course. This stage includes:

  • Estimating the income needed to get you to your destination.
  • Analyzing and optimizing your income sources. For example, running a Social Security or pension analysis to determine the best age to begin taking benefits.
  • Crafting an investment strategy tailored to generate the supplementary income needed.
  • Designing a withdrawal strategy that minimizes taxes and maximizes income.
  • Ensuring your estate documents reflect your desires and intentions.

3. Taking Flight

With a well-defined flight plan, we’re ready to hit the skies. This phase involves executing the strategy we’ve crafted together, all the while keeping a keen eye out for potential financial storms. As we navigate the journey, we’re ready to adapt and recalibrate our course if necessary.

As your trusted retirement planning advisor, we ensure your retirement plan remains aligned with your evolving lifestyle and financial aspirations, giving you the confidence to move toward your retirement years with assurance and peace of mind.
