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?
