Evaluating Retirement Readiness

Assessing Your Income Sources

A crucial step in retirement planning is understanding your various income sources. These may include pensions, savings, investments, and annuities. Each source contributes to your overall financial stability in retirement. Carefully evaluate the reliability and longevity of these sources to ensure they will meet your long-term needs.

Considering Social Security

Social Security is a vital component of retirement income for many. Understanding how much you will receive and how it fits into your overall retirement plan is essential. Social Security can provide a substantial portion of your retirement income, but it often needs to be supplemented with other sources.

Monthly Income Comparison

To determine if you are ready to retire, compare your current monthly income to your projected retirement income. Typically, retirees aim to have 75-85% of their pre-retirement income to maintain their standard of living. This percentage covers essential expenses, leisure activities, and unexpected costs.

The Role of Annuities

Annuities can play a significant role in ensuring a stable retirement income. They provide a steady stream of income that can last for the rest of your life, helping to bridge the gap between Social Security and your required income. Annuities offer peace of mind by ensuring you do not outlive your resources.
