Financial Focus: Will I Outlive My Pension and Savings

Anthony RivieccioFinancial Focus: Will my money outlive me?

By Anthony Rivieccio. MBA, PFA

Today, retirement is funded by many sources including: pension income, Social Security income, and personal savings.  So do you know how long you’re going to live after retirement at 62, age 65, or age 70?

10 years? 20 years?

Let’s try one simple rule, now! 

Take your annual standard of living and multiple it by the number of years you want to live.

Example: If you make $50,000 and want to live the same way you do now—at retirement for 20 years–then that amount you should have at retirement ($50,000 x 20) is $1 Million!.

And that is not including 20 years if taxes and inflation. 20 years of inflation turns $1 Million into $600,000 — a loss of $400,000.

That means you just lost 8 years of your 20 year retirement.

Do you really have enough money to live before you die?
