January 13, 2022

RETIRING WITH COMFORTABLE SAVINGS

Many people want to retire with enough savings to have a secure and comfortable retirement with their loved ones. It’s never too early to put together an investment strategy with a financial professional to make this goal a reality.

 

HAVING ACCESSIBLE CASH FLOW

It’s important to know how much cash you have to ensure you have sufficient liquid assets available to you during retirement. While stocks, bonds, 401(k)s and other investment options are important aspects to your investment portfolio, managing cash flow is also extremely vital.

 

TRAVELING

Taking one or two vacations a year or visiting family and friends is a common future goal. Having savings to draw from instead of using a fixed monthly income can help you continue to travel in your golden years.

 

MAINTAINING YOUR FAMILY HOME

Your home is a place where you’ve made many family memories, and it’s reasonable to want to continue living there as you look toward the future. In order to do so, you should work with a financial professional to plan for expected fixed costs and unexpected costs that may arise.

 

PASSING ON GIFTS TO YOUR FAMILY

Income tax basis is an important consideration to keep in mind when deciding when to transfer gifts to your beneficiaries. A financial professional can help you determine whether you can afford to transfer a gift now, what the marginal income tax rates are for you and the recipient, and if transferring gifts can reduce your combined gift and estate taxes.
