Retirement Income: Planning and Distribution Strategies
The presentation will focus on strategies to recreate your paycheck in retirement, how to draw an income from your assets in tax efficient manner, and how to create safety nets in your overall plan. This session will benefit those who are nearing retirement as well as those who may already be in the retirement phase of their life.

  2. How to draw down or off of your assets to try and minimize taxes
  3. How to build buffers and safety nets in your retirement income
Reasons to Attend:

  2. What steps have you taken to protect your retirement income from market volatility? What if we have another year like 2008?
  3. What have you done to protect your retirement income from rising taxes and health care costs?
