LifePlanning: Retirement Planning Re-imagined!
The reality of retirement planning is this…
If you are retired or are planning to retire, you are almost certainly headed for retirement failure – not because you did not plan, but because you likely planned incorrectly and put all your hopes into that plan. What you hope to achieve over the rest of your life (not just the next few years) is to AVOID:
1. Institutional care
2. Becoming a burden on others
3. Running out of money
Realistically, there is a 70% likelihood that you will NOT be able to live out your life in your own home, that your loved ones will unknowingly become your unpaid caregivers when you are no longer independent, and you will lose a large portion of your hard earned assets to pay for uncovered medical and long-term care costs.
That doesn’t need to be the case
…if you upgrade your retirement plan to a LifePlan, a coordinated retirement plan that addresses retirement issues more effectively. By re-imagining retirement planning, to address every aspect of life a retiree will have to deal with sooner or later, a LifePlan makes sure that each aspect works seamlessly when you are no longer able to captain your own ship.
Why do you need a LifePlan?
Each failure in retirement is the result of inadequate planning, disparate areas of life planned with no regard of one another. Health, Housing, Finance, Legal, and Family – all connected in the end but never planned in a coordinated manner. Coordinate your planning efforts and you have a comprehensive LifePlan, a plan that is more effective than a traditional retirement plan. With a LifePlan you can confidently: avoid institutional care, not become a burden, and protect your assets.
