How to Make Your Money Last and Work for You in Retirement

  • Get the most out of your social security benefits. Have a plan. Social security is a piece of retirement, and when you should take your withdrawal depends on your individual situation.
  • Get the most out of your pension benefits. Make the right call when it comes to spousal benefit options. Think through the survival option. Taking control with a buyout option may be a better plan.
  • Reduce your taxes. Keep more of your money. Over the course of a lifetime $6000 a year in tax savings is well over $100,000. When you are retired, you have more control over the taxes you pay by manipulating income strategies.
  • Know exactly how you are going to withdraw money from retirement accounts. Turning one income stream on at a time might give you higher income and lower taxes. You need to plan where you decide where to take your money from and in what order.
  • Use different investment options for income. Mutual funds may not have the best tax efficiencies and fee schedules. You can look at ETFs, individual stocks or bonds, life insurance with tax free income, and some annuities may be appropriate. Get involved in different investments that create income.
