We know a few people retiring this year. Each new cohort of retirees faces its own set of challenges. This week we highlight a few issues for this year’s retirees to consider.
You will be retiring into a sluggish economic recovery. While the economy is improving, the rate of improvement is much lower than expected. The problem is with the consumer. Instead of spending, more are saving. Russ Koesterich of BlackRock explains why.
You will need to head off downside risk. With a sluggish recovery and high valuations, it is even more important to have the right investment plan. Preserving capital can make or break plan goals. Retirement investors must have the right glide path.
Manage cash needs throughout retirement because returns may be lower going forward than in your working years. Most investors share three goals: build wealth, maintain a steady income and preserve their assets. MarketWatch presents four key strategies to help guide retirement decisions and manage cash needs through retirement.
Get the most out of your social security benefits. One of the most important financial decisions many will make is when to begin taking Social Security retirement benefits. Allan Sloan, columnist for The Washington Post explains.
