Retirement Income Planning

Converting 401(k)s, lump sum pensions, IRAs and other investment vehicles into a predictable income stream should be one of your goals when entering retirement. Whatever budget shortfall is not covered with your pension and Social Security will have to be produced by your investments or savings. Risks to your income plan like inflation, sequence of investment risk and market risk could have an impact on your ability to draw the amount of income you hope to receive from your retirement portfolio.

Depending on your unique situation, our advisors may use one or more of the following strategies:

Income Strategies*

Goal-Based: An annual withdrawal of no more than 3 to 4 percent of your account value, adjusted for inflation, from your portfolio every year.

Time Segmented: This strategy helps you diversify investments into buckets based on time horizon. The idea is to mainly position a certain portion of your wealth into multiple buckets based on time segmentation. This strategy will help you know which vehicle or retirement account from which your paycheck is coming.

Cash Flow: For the more risk-averse investor, a cash flow strategy develops guaranteed income with little to no market risk. This strategy may use yield or interest from guaranteed sources in an attempt to protect your income.

Flooring: A combination strategy that develops a budget of both basic and discretionary expenses. If there is a shortfall, make sure you have at least the basic expenses coming in on a “safer” or reliable basis.
