The Game Plan
One thing that we always try to do with clients is help them evaluate their portfolio and make adjustments as they move closer to retirement and then into that next chapter. Part of doing that is understanding when certain strategies no longer make sense for you.
On this episode of The Retirement Playbook, Dale will discuss some common financial things that you’ve likely considered when putting a plan together. Three of these seem to be beneficial but he’ll explain why they can be overrated in certain scenarios. The other three might not get as much attention but maybe you should be paying closer attention to them.
Always remember that retirement planning never ends. It requires consistent evaluation and tweaking as your goals change and your needs shift. That’s why each of these things we discuss today might even flip for you depending on what’s best for your plan. That’s why we always work closely with our clients to make sure they’re staying on track for their retirement goals.
