You want to give yourself every advantage you can in retirement! It is all about your future cash flows. Get this one right and everything else seems to fall into place nicely. Get it wrong or estimate it too aggressively and retirement can become a lot more stressful.
We frequently see potential retirees just using a thumbnail sketch on their cash flows. We often hear people say, “Oh it looks like my income should be fine.” There are just too many variables for you to just wing it. Make sure that you are getting it right.
Retirement is our specialty. Without professional guidance there are typically thousands of dollars left on the table. You might just as well be using these dollars instead of Uncle Sam or your prior employer. As just one example, according to a recent study done by JPMorgan the difference in inflation adjusted lifetime Social Security income for individuals taking benefits too early can be as much as $181,000. It takes a plan and it takes proper coordination to make sure all of your retirement pieces fit snugly together.
