Financial media have put so much focus in recent years on how investors can accumulate wealth for retirement that they often have overlooked what investors should do once they actually retire.
But with the first wave of baby boomers turning 60 next year, retirees’ abilities to manage their assets will become a much bigger issue.
As financial planning becomes more complex – and as workers become increasingly responsible for funding their own retirements – investors would be wise to seek advice about navigating the retirement waters.
American Century Investments has developed an award-winning, 21-page booklet, “Manage Your Investments During Retirement,” that helps guide investors through various issues as they approach and enter retirement, including:
* building a retirement portfolio;
* managing income sources, from retirement savings to Social Security benefits;
* forecasting expenses for health care and long-term care;
* determining annuity payments and withdrawal strategies for all accounts, including taxable and tax-deferred accounts;
* calculating a withdrawal rate.
