Have a retirement plan and run it against scenarios to ensure you will not run out of money during retirement?
Follow the steps that plan requires?
Have plans to create an “income stream” in retirement?
Have a tax-optimized distribution strategy?
Things to consider
The first rule of retirement income planning is to never run out of money. The second rule is to never forget the first rule. Retirement distribution strategies are unique to each individual/couple, taking into account their goals, needs and ability to handle risk. Without a regular paycheck, you need to create a consistent, sustainable income stream at the lowest cost. You must make sure that your distribution strategy is tax-optimized to avoid paying unnecessary taxes.
