Election time always brings about big emotions. This election, perhaps more than ever before.
Half of our country is elated. The other half devastated.
Regardless of which side you were on, one thing is for sure: a new President will bring about new changes, some of which could impact your retirement.
Every four to eight years, when a new President is elected, clients will ask me the same questions:
What will happen to my Social Security benefits? What will happen to my Medicare benefits? Will the stock market be affected by this President? Should I be worried?
Although none of us can know with certainty what exact changes will occur or when they will occur, we can prepare ourselves and our retirement funds for any scenario. How? By learning about ALL your retirement options.
Often, we’ll run through various scenarios with clients, to see how things would turn out if the “unexpected” happened. We’ll talk about the “what ifs” and make sure our clients feel comfortable with those potential outcomes. We’ll even discuss specific options that can help ensure peace of mind.
Some annuities, for example, offer you protection of your principle, while still giving you a consistent income over your lifetime. Other available products, like insurance products, can protect your assets in other ways.
The best way to guarantee your retirement safety and security is to ask questions and get informed. Ultimately, it is up to you to learn everything you can about your retirement options and make the best decision for you and your family.
We recommend you meet with a qualified financial advisor at least once per year to review your current situation, discuss new options, and determine what might happen if outside circumstances (like the stock market or the government benefits or laws) change.
