Your Retirement Strategies

 

 

Going into retirement can be a scary thing to consider. Life as you’ve known it for the past 40+ years
could be caught in the wind and your new normal, most likely, will be having monthly expenses that
exceed your monthly Social Security check. If you’re one of the lucky few who still has a great pension
benefit, then your monthly income may cover your expenses, but how will you fund those well-deserved
vacations or a “snowbird” home in Florida? Here are some things you may be thinking about:

● When should you take Social Security?
● If you have a pension, should you take a single-life payout that pays more now, or take a spousal
benefit so your spouse will continue to receive pension income when you’re gone?
● If delaying Social Security benefits until age 70, what money will you live off of until then?
