To retire and live your life in a truly abundant way... it takes knowing that your financial picture is taken care of.

If you're a Baby Boomer and want to set yourself up to enjoy what matters most, there are 6 essential pillars you need to know about utilized by almost every successful retiree..

The 6 Financial Pillars in Retirement

1) Realistic Goals

You need a clear vision of what you want your retirement to look like.  It should be clearly articulated and budgeted for, and it must be realistic with the amount of income and assets you'll have at your disposal

2) Sufficient Income

Whether it's through optimizing Social Security and pension, or generating income through investments and annuities, your income needs to be adequate to meet your needs and sustainable throughout your lifetime.


3) Tax Efficiency

Not having a plan for tax-efficiency could have a huge impact on your retirement outcome. Things like knowing which retirement accounts to draw from first and taking advantage of a potentially lower tax-bracket could easily save you tens of thousands of dollars.

4) Investment Allocation

You should use a variety of investment types, each accomplishing a specific purpose within your plan.  They should be efficient in terms of taxation and expenses, and all your investments should work together to provide you with liquidity, safety and growth.

5) Risk Management

Have you identified how things like market risk, inflation risk, longevity and sequence of returns risk might affect you over time?  
These are some of the most common threats to retirement that need to be measured and dealt with in advance.

6) Evaluation Over Time

You need to have check points periodically over time.  Were your assumptions realistic?  Are you still on track to meet your goals?  Have there been any changes in the markets, taxes or your life?  Any of these could be a reason enough to make adjustments or change course.


Having The 6 Pillars in place is the key to  living abundantly.

Knowing that your money will be there allows you spend more time on the things that matter most:
like travelling, hobbies, and taking care of yourself as well as the people that you love.
