In today’s world, retirement can take many forms. It can be full retirement or phased. For some it is an opportunity to do what they have been dreaming about, and that can take money.
Retirement is also more than having a pension. It is a time when you can review all your assets, and use them all in an integrated plan to deliver cash or income when it is needed.
We can also help our clients plan for the costs of care in later life should it be needed.
The scope of planning at retirement
Retirement is a critical point in the lives of many people.
It is a time when you have more time on your hands, and so may want to have money available to enjoy your interests to the full, whether travel, hobbies or grandchildren!
It is also a time when you can start to think and plan about later life, and the potential need for care, whether in your own home or not. And it can be a good time to start thinking about passing on your wealth to the next generation.
To get the best out of this time, careful planning is essential.
Will your private or final salary pensions give you the income you really need?
Worried about whether you’ll be facing a comfortable retirement?
