Lifetime Planning

Life expectancy is increasing for many Americans. According to data compiled by the Social Security Administration, about one out of every four 65-year-olds today will live past age 90, and one out of 10 will live past 95.

It's important that our money lasts at least as long as we do. Lifetime planning starts with an understanding that life is a series of expected and unexpected events. We cannot control many of the events, but we can minimize the economic consequences these events have on our lives by proper financial planning.

What rate of return do you have to earn on your savings and investment dollars to be able to retire at your current standard of living and have your money last throughout your life expectancy? Have you done any social security planning or looked at Roth conversions as a strategy to reduce your required IRA distributions at retirement?

If you continue to do what you are currently doing, how long will you have to work to be able to retire and live your current lifestyle throughout your life expectancy?

If you do nothing different than what you are doing today, how much will you have to reduce your standard of living at retirement in order for your money to last throughout your life expectancy? 

Traditional IRA account owners should consider the tax ramifications, age and income restrictions in regards to executing a conversion from a Traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. The converted amount is generally subject to income taxation.
