How to Build Your Retirement Savings

Even if you understand the importance of building your retirement savings, you might not be sure how to pursue that goal. Our financial advisors can help you create a plan for your savings, so you can maximize your employer’s contributions to your 401(k) as well as your personal tax deductions. You may also want to use an IRA and a Roth IRA to contribute additional money towards your retirement years.

We can help you manage your retirement portfolios in your 401(k), IRAs, and Roth accounts. We’ll use a personalized investment strategy that considers your objectives, timelines, and risk tolerance. We consider the tax implications of your investment decisions and help you decide which type of retirement vehicles and funds are most appropriate for your situation. With our help, you can put your retirement plan on autopilot.

How to Avoid Running Out of Money in Retirement

The second phase of retirement is just as important as the accumulation phase. Now that you’ve built up a sizable nest egg, you want to make sure you don’t run out of money. Our retirement planners can help you create an income distribution plan. Most likely, you’ll receive income from one or more of these sources:

  • Social Security benefits
  • 401(k) distributions
  • IRA withdrawals
  • Roth account distributions
  • Pension 
  • Private investments
  • Savings account

Our retirement planners can help you optimize the timing of applying for Social Security benefits. We’ll also help you coordinate the different income streams to minimize your tax burden. With annuities, we can even provide a fixed income, much like a regular paycheck, to help you budget for your monthly expenses and preserve your retirement nest egg for the future.

Why Retirement Planning Is Vital

Social Security benefits are rarely enough to pay the bills, which is why it’s important to create a retirement savings plan for you and your family. Fortunately, you can build up significant savings by contributing 10 to 15% of your income each month. Even if you have to save less, the most important part is getting started and making consistent contributions.

We want to help you enjoy your retirement years. That’s why we’re here to help you with retirement planning and retirement income distributions. We’ll help you make the best financial decisions for your financial situation and your personal goals.

How Much Money Do I Need to Save for Retirement?

How much money you need to save for retirement depends on your cost of living and how soon you want to retire. It’s usually easier to start with your target retirement income and multiply that by the estimated length of retirement. Our retirement planners can help you calculate how much you’ll need to save for retirement to enjoy the lifestyle you want.

When Can I Retire?

You can apply for Social Security benefits as early as age 62, but most people can’t pay the bills on Social Security income alone. To maximize those benefits, you might prefer waiting until age 70 even if you retire sooner and use other retirement savings to cover your monthly living expenses.
