People retiring soon
Pension Freedoms have changed the landscape of retirement planning and you now have far more flexibility that ever before. This can be a double-edged sword; perhaps allowing you to retire sooner than you previously thought possible, but with pitfalls and dangers to avoid.
For most people close to retirement, there are three important questions:
- Can I afford to retire now, and if not, when?
- Will my existing pensions, investments and savings generate enough income until I die, or if I am married, when my spouse passes away?
- Will I be able to leave anything behind to my family?
Simple enough questions and all very sensible.
Our job is to answer these, and more. For example:
Income: How much will you need in retirement? You would be amazed by the number of people who don’t know the answer to this question.
Retirement options: What’s the best way to turn your pension into an income?
Expenses: Is there any future capital expenditure you need to plan for? For example, home improvements, large holidays and such like.
Family: Do you want to financially assist your children or grandchildren? Perhaps to help with the cost of university or buying their first house.
State Pension: How much will you get and when will it be paid?
Existing savings & investments: Do you need to make any changes considering your retirement?
Early retirement: Can you stop working without compromising on your lifestyle in retirement?
