   What's the Secret to a Successful Retirement?     You have to have a Plan!! 

 5 Questions you have to have answers to before and during retirement:

1). How much money do I have to have each month to live on? not the extras - just to live on?

2). Am I guaranteed to have that much coming in each month?

3). What's the best strategy for taking Social Security?  Should I file and suspend?  Will I be taxed?      How much will the remaining spouse receive?

4).  Am I certain I won't run out of money in retirement and what can I do to reduce that possibly?

5).  What is my strategy for paying for Long Term Care?

These are really just a few of the questions you need answered in order to minimize your worry during retirement.
