The Three Big Risks

Retirees face some big financial risks that can devastate their retirement security. A solid plan for creating monthly income should recognize this fact, and then seek to manage risks.

Below is information about what I call The Three Big Risks: Timing, Inflation and Longevity risks. Seeking to manage these is the key to enjoying greater retirement security and making your income last.

01. Timing Risk

Would you want to leave your retirement security to chance?

The reality is that by picking a year to retire that is a bad year for stocks can be the difference between your income fortunately continuing for years, or unfortunately running out early. Don't leave your retirement security to good luck or bad.

02. Inflation Risk

The effect of rising prices can threaten a retiree's standard of living. For example, in 1980, the average price of a new car was $7,210. By 1989, it had increased to $15,400. And in 2017, the average new car cost $33,560. At a 3% rate of inflation, a retiree loses 25% of his or her purchasing power every ten years.

Your strategy for creating retirement income must seek to keep your income on pace with inflation.

03. Longevity Risk

No retiree stops needing money. So a good question to contemplate is, "How long could my retirement last?" Think about the oldest person you know? Is he or she over 80? or 90? The fact is, a married couple age 65 has a 25% chance that the surviving spouse will live to age 98!

Your strategy for creating retirement income should provide a "floor" of monthly income you can't outlive.
