Retirement Planning The goal for retirement should be to maintain a standard of living commensurate with clients’ desires and needs, even in the face of ever-increasing cost of living. Professional Planning approaches retirement planning for clients by identifying and funding for a specific and comfortable amount of net annual retirement income. Financial Planning Everyone’s plan is unique. It may or may not include all the contents indicated below and may vary in subject matter. A financial plan may include collaboration with other professionals such as an estate planning attorney and accountant. Insurance Needs Professional Planning’s purpose for studying clients’ insurance needs is to identify major economic risk exposure such as – premature death, disability, medical expense, outliving one’s income and long term care. In this manner, risk is reduced so that one’s financial plan will not unravel through unforeseen catastrophe. Further, unwarranted expenditure for unnecessary or inappropriate insurance coverage could be used for asset accumulation. Funding Future Goals Funding for a child’s education, a vacation home, a future business, retirement and other goals can be planned for when goals are clearly defined and money is set aside regularly. One may set aside a lump sum, or have a systematic plan of periodic savings or investment. If a fixed amount is allocated, one must know what return is needed to reach a specific goal by a specified time. Professional Planning assists clients to define their goals and to execute a plan to achieve those goals.
