A declining market will make any retiree uncomfortable, and it could put your future in jeopardy if you haven’t thought through your withdrawal strategy. Many retirees struggle to shift their mindset from accumulation to distribution so let’s talk about how to determine how much you should be taking out of your accounts each year in retirement.
In this episode, Laura Stover, RFC® and Michael Wallin, CFP® will tell you what the data says and explain the considerations you need to make when structuring a retirement income plan. Maybe the biggest factor you’ll face is sequence risk, which is the risk of encountering different market conditions early in retirement which puts a portfolio in jeopardy of not lasting a lifetime. Once you get into retirement, that sequence of return becomes very important because all that you built could go away just as fast depending on the timing of these withdrawals.
Traditional financial strategies say a 4% withdrawal each year is safe, but how accurate is that? Last year’s suggest rate had reduced to 3.3% but that has crept back up to 3.8% this year. These numbers might apply to you, but you won’t know until you build a proper plan. It all starts with a framework and our LifeArcPlan works with clients to input their data to determine a safe withdrawal rate based on a number of factors. We’ll take you through it all on this show to help you protect everything you’ve worked so hard to build.
