Did you know that modern retirements last between 20 and 40 years? That’s a sobering fact that makes you realise how important it is to have a plan in place for such a long stage of your life after you stop working.
We all need an income when we retire and so, it’s essential to ensure you have a retirement income strategy in place in time.
All retirement planning is done with your current financial status in mind, fuelled by your desired status and lifestyle goals for retirement.
From minimum must-haves like food, utilities and healthcare, to financing things like travel, hobbies, entertainment and supporting your children and grandchildren in their life transitions, your retirement plan aims to ensure you also have finances for those rainy-day moments too
Your retirement plan also needs to consider if you’re planning to gift money to children, downsize your current home, buy a holiday home or even move to a different country.
We create a strategy which prepares your finances for any cashflow shortfalls, and we do this through (but is not limited to) pension savings, asset sales and investments.
Post-retirement, we partner with you to help you through any changes in everything from travel plans to opportunities to invest in family business.
It might seem daunting to have to discuss these things, especially when we are forced to face failing health conditions and how our loved ones will be looked after, but Foundation Stone Financial Planning will support you and your family through these discussions so you can feel comforted that you have a plan in place for all.
