Planning & Learning

You've done it, you've retired. You stopped collecting a salary. Now how are you going to make the money you worked so hard for last your lifetime, but still enjoy retirement? Part of the challenge is to manage the income you receive from pension and your own savings and protect your assets.

Planning for retirement does not necessarily stop just because you have already retired. A licensed advisor can show you how to make your money work for you, as you begin the next phase of your life, starting today!

Here are a few questions to ask yourself once you are retired:

  • How much will I be able to spend in my retirement?
  • How soon can I start using my retirement savings?
  • Will my money last?
  • How will taxes affect my income in retirement?
  • What happens if my health changes?

From a financial planning point of view, ensure that you have made provisions for your estate and the future needs of your loved ones.

Other considerations when you are retired :

  • Review your estate plan, which should also include your will and instructions. This should include all the assets you want to pass on.
  • Discuss with your family to give them an understanding of your wishes and your plans for the future, so as to avoid any problems at a later time
  • Create a plan that would look after your interests, in the event that you become physically or mentally Incapacitated. Include a decision as to who will manage your affairs, both physical and financial, if you cannot. This decision should be supported by the appropriate legal documents such as a power of attorney.
    Consider whether your current income is sufficient to meet your needs or if it needs to be adjusted.
