Retirement Challenges

Many people think about retirement in simple terms.  I work most of my adult life, put money into some kind of retirement savings account, decide on a retirement age and enjoy!  Unfortunately, it’s a much more cumbersome process than that and there are several factors that need to be taken into account before determining your right retirement age and income.  Understanding and properly preparing for retirement challenges is one of many reasons it’s wise to have an adviser to help you plan for this important stage in life.
