PRIOR PLANNING PAYS ™

Part 4 of 5: 60s & 70s

Planning for retirement is a lifelong process.  Be on the lookout for your age for steps you should be taking right now.  And remember, everyone over 18 should have a living will.

 

Your 60s

  • Your retirement could last more than 20 years, so investment growth is important.
  • Make sure your retirement assets are earning above inflation rate, but safe.
  • Create an estate plan and make sure your will is current.
  • Think about how you want to receive income once you retire.  Explore your options with your financial planner.
  • When should you begin taking your Social Security Benefits?  Discuss your options with your financial planner.
  • During this stage, 60 percent of your portfolio should be in income-type investments as a rule of thumb.

 

Your 70s

  • Investment income becomes more important.
  • Make sure your retirement assets are earning above inflation rate, but safe.
  • Review your estate plan and make sure your will is current.
  • Your IRA and 401k Required Minimum Distributions by age 70 ½.
  • During this state, 70 percent of your portfolio should be in income-type investments as a rule of thumb.
