Do you have a written plan showing the projection of future income you expect to receive throughout your retirement?
Does it show when each income source starts, stops, increases, or decreases?
If you didn’t retire yet, have you reviewed different financial scenarios for various retirement dates? Do you know when it’s best time for you to retire?
How much money should you keep liquid in the future years?
Did you analyze future income taxes you will pay as you take income from your assets?
Do you know how much money you can reasonably expect to leave to your beneficiaries?
Does your plan include emergency situations such as being confined to a nursing home or being diagnosed with a terminal illness?
