Living in Retirement
Move Toward Retirement With Your Goals in Mind
Retirement is a significant milestone in your life and should be carefully planned for. Whether you’re just starting to put money aside for your future or are currently living in retirement, a concrete investment and management plan is essential.
Retirement Planning Must Knows
Building Your Plan
The road to retirement is different for everyone, which is why you need to build a plan that is unique to your situation, lifestyle, and goals. Key points of your plans should include retirement income preparation, Social Security & Medicare review, investment management, and Legacy & Estate Planning Strategies.
Allocating Your Finances
It’s never too early (or too late) to set financial goals but achieving them requires a clear understanding of your personal finances and what services will best support you. Consider getting a professional analysis to help meet your short- and long-term goals. Citadel can provide sound financial guidance and personalized planning services to help you achieve your specific goals.
Rolling over to an Individual Retirement Account can allow you to keep your savings tax-deferred and typically gives you a broader choice of investments. It’s best to have professional help when navigating all the different options for your retirement savings and help reduce any possible tax liability. Our Financial Advisors can help rollover your retirement savings.
Estate Planning & Wealth Transfer
Estate planning and wealth transfer can be a difficult topic to talk about with your family, but it is crucial to have a set plan to ensure a smooth transition when a loved one passes. Conversations on this topic can be tough but they are essential to ensure your wealth and estate is properly transferred with a tax-efficient strategy.
