Optimize Your 401(k) to Strengthen Your Financial Future

Calming Retirement Fears

Retirement is a big deal, much like a marriage, or having children as well as similar life events. Making the decision is often difficult as so much of our social fabric is entwined with whom we collaborate. There are internal factors including one’s health and mental fortitude to keep up the grind(with a bit less energy) versus environmental factors outside our control: volatility in the financial sector, inflation, medical debt, and unforeseen circumstances. The bottom line usually rests on one key ingredient: will I run out of money?
 
Planning for retirement should begin as early as financially possible. Unless you have chosen a profession within the civil services, pensions are a long-forgotten relic of a previous era and a well-managed 401k plan can set you apart with stability within retirement. 
 

Ask The Expert

Robert Wroblewski Jr., Business Development Manager at Treece Financial Group, answers the question of what a person do to to make sure they won’t run out of money during retirement. 
 
There are a few ways to determine if you have enough assets to retire. We utilize a state-of-the-art financial planning program to crunch a client’s numbers that then provides us a big picture overview.  By calculating the balances in aperson’s current portfolio, their saving habits, theirSocial Security benefits, we can determine an approximate monthly income in retirement.” Robert states.We also make some assumptions which we can tweak about rates of return before and after retirement, inflation rates, etc. We produce a report which includes what if scenarios so a client can get an idea if they are on track financially or what adjustments you should make to get on track.
