Core Retirement Income

Millions of people put their core retirement income at risk. What’s “core retirement income”? Core retirement income is the money you need for the basic expenses necessary to live: household, meals, personal care, healthcare, transportation, and some leisure and hobbies.

It may be $35,000/yr., $120,000/yr., or $250,000/yr. Once you determine that amount, wouldn’t it be nice to have confidence that you’ve created a predictable retirement income stream, with inflation protection, tax advantages, arriving on a monthly basis, and accessible?

Millions of people put their core retirement income at risk.

They don’t set up a predictable income stream; in fact, they don’t even know the opportunity exists. Many view Social Security as a guaranteed income stream, but rarely does it cover all expenses.

Isn’t it time to start thinking about creating a core retirement income without risk?

Unfortunately, 401(k)s and IRAs are the financial vehicles most people use to save. These are cursed with fees, taxes, risk, and volatility. They will not provide you with a certain income stream.

Why? You don’t know what future tax rates will be, and you don’t know what the value of the investments will be at any given time. Remember, volatility is not your friend.
