“Imagine sitting down on the day of your retirement to plan your financial future. You know what your annual expenses have been and you want to maintain your current standard of living. So, you consult a recent mortality table and find that if you’ve made it to your 65th birthday, you can expect to live to 85 years old. You perform a little calculation and find that, together with your Social Security monthly payments, you have just enough savings to maintain your current standard of living and spend all of your savings and future expected earnings by the time you die at the age of 85. But what if you live longer?” This and other questions are addressed in great detail in this week’s article. We have some ideas of options that might be available to you which address the ‘if you live longer’ question. Call us, we’re always here to help.
