Equipping Points:

When creating a financial plan, there are a lot of factors to consider. For some, the pain points of the future can cause a bit of fear and trepidation. But many of these pain points can be addressed in a way that can bring you peace of mind. In today’s episode of the Retirement Ready podcast, we’ll make sure you aren’t getting caught up on any of these areas of concern.

With life expectancies running longer, there is an extreme fear of running out of money before you die. How do you prepare for that? Are annuities one way to provide for your life?

While taxes are something you can depend on always being something in your life, you don’t know just how they may impact your retirement. Not knowing your tax rate in the future can be a big stressor later on. You’ll want to work with somebody who understands taxes in order to reduce your tax liability.

When it comes to long-term care, nursing homes are a frightening concept for many. Nursing homes are expensive, but you can prepare for it. There are insurance options and ways to save in your own retirement planning that can account for a potential need for long-term care.

Some worry constantly about when the next market crash will hit. So, look through your investment strategy. What options do you have? People are afraid of a correction taking a large amount of their money away, so readjusting your risk profile is critical.
