Clarksville, TN – Adding more stocks to your income plan may help offset low interest rates and inflation.
We live in unusual times, with interest rates at historical lows but likely to rise in the not-too-distant future, stocks trading at what some consider elevated levels driven by a years-long bull market, and investors scouring the pronouncements of central banks for clues to what may happen next.
However, one thing remains unchanged – those in or near retirement still have to map out a prudent strategy for generating income in the years ahead.
Clarksville, TN – Medicare provides a lot of coverage, but it doesn’t cover everything.
It’s never too early to start thinking and planning for retirement, especially when it comes to the top three expenses: housing, transportation and healthcare.
Even with Medicare, quality healthcare can come with a hefty price tag with premiums, copayments, deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses to account for.
Clarksville, TN – With retirement within sight, now’s the time to figure out how to turn your savings and investments into a paycheck – so you can live comfortably and still achieve your goals.
For many, the challenge is easier said than done, and comes alongside fears of spending too much now and not having enough later or the worry of denying yourself if you don’t spend enough.
Here are seven ways to help you get and stay on the right track.
Clarksville, TN – It’s time to shine some light on common Social Security misconceptions to help you get the most from your hard-earned benefits.
Myth #1 – Social Security won’t be around
FACT – Social Security is replenished by working Americans, interest on its bonds and taxes on some retiree benefits. Should the existing surplus be depleted, future retirees may be paid a portion of the benefits promised, but not zero.
Clarksville, TN – Life’s long and winding road generally includes plenty of side trips on the way to a comfortable retirement. There may be homes to buy, children to raise and educate, careers to pursue, a vacation here and there.
When done strategically, borrowing can help you address those needs – like purchasing a home – without derailing long-term goals, such as a comfortable retirement. The key is to consider how the loan will work within your overall financial picture, taking into account each factor including the interest, duration and regular payments.
Clarksville, TN – Most of us have had to deal with debt at some point in our lives, yet it still seems to be one of those taboo subjects no one wants to talk about – whether with friends, family or romantic partners. All the while, it may be more common for couples today to enter into relationships with debt, from student loans, credit cards or loans for large purchases like cars or homes.
Whatever each party’s situation may be, being up front early on can help you avoid unnecessary financial and personal conflict down the road.
Clarksville, TN – For many, tapping into your retirement principal causes some anxiety.
Whether you’re months or years from retirement, work with your advisor to develop a withdrawal strategy that gives you confidence that your money will last as long as your retirement does.
Fortunately, there are flexible strategies that can be used alone or in combination. With each of these strategies, it’s a good idea to start with a conservative withdrawal rate and increase it as your portfolio grows.
