The number one question Retirees and Pre-Retirees ask is, “How much money do I need to retire?” Followed by the second question, “Will I run out of money?” 


Fortunately, we can answer both questions with an analysis that includes the Four Elements of Retirement:

Widows & Widowers

When you lose a spouse, it can feel impossible to think about money. Yet, within the first year or so of a loved one’s passing, you’re tasked with making decisions that may have a long-lasting impact on your future. These can include:

 

  • Transferring Assets

  • Inheriting Retirement Plans and Pensions

  • Claiming Spousal Benefits

  • Collecting Life Insurance

  • Updating Your Estate Planning Documents

  • Managing your finances independently

 

This time can be very emotional, yet objectivity is paramount. Having helped numerous widows and widowers after their spouse’s passing, I can support and guide you during this difficult time.

Plan for Your Spouse’s Future

The unfortunate reality is that one day, you or your spouse will be a widow or widower. It is encouraged that both of you plan in advance in order to minimize the financial disruption. These are difficult conversations to have, but at the same time, it is comforting to know you are prepared no matter what life may bring your way. You’ll have already made the important decisions when your emotions are calm.

Divorcees

Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult life transitions someone can make. It can leave you feeling uncertain about the future, and adrift in your own life. While it is a kind of death— the death of a dream, marriage, or imagined future—it's different than when a spouse passes. There are more messes to clean up: legal, emotional, spiritual and financial.

Before

If you’re in the beginning stages of your divorce, you should gather certain information. You should also assemble a team of advisors (legal, tax, and financial) who will support and guide you through this difficult time.

 

During

While legal and financial matters will be ongoing, an equally important consideration is your emotional and spiritual health. You’ll need to think about making it day-by-day, but you should also think about longer-term plans and what may arise in the future. For example, who will pay for college expenses even if that’s many years away?

 

After

After your divorce is final, you will have a new “single” identity. You’ll want to establish, in your own name, things such as credit cards, savings/checking accounts, titles to homes, cars, financial accounts, etc. Updating your estate planning documents is also high on the list. It can be daunting, but remember it doesn’t have to be all done immediately and your team of advisors can certainly lend a helping hand.

 

I will help you take control of your finances independently and gain a better understanding of your financial future.

And remember: you will get through this and you will survive.
