Welcome to The Jeff Dixson Show “coaching to and through retirement”. I am your host, The Retirement Coach, Jeff Dixson.
I am joined today, as usual, by my co-host, a financial advisor at NW Financial & Tax Solutions, David Topper.
For many people, the start of a new year means resolving to do better at everything from fitness, to family, to finances.
According to The Motley Fool, this year, 80% of Americans are making money-related resolutions that can change their lives for the better.
This is a statistic that we’re very happy about.
But we do know that retirement in America is in a very sad state.
Nearly one in three Americans age 65 to 69 is still working.
And almost one in five in their early 70s are also still working, according to Bloomberg.
69% of American adults have saved less than $1,000 for retirement according to Go Banking Rates.
And according to the Motley Fool, 63% of people over 65 years old are either completely dependent or mostly dependent on Social Security for income.
Now…. I hope none of these describe your situation.
But these statistics do reveal how severe of an impact improper planning can have.
With this in mind, we want to help you, our listeners avoid the pitfalls, understand your options, and build the winning retirement game plan that will put you in the drivers seat, when it comes to your future.
That’s right, and today on the show, we want to look at planning for the new year in two different ways.
As “The Retirement Coach”, I am a firm believer in the fundamentals to retirement success.
There are fundamentals, that even smart, well educated people, often overlook.
Whether you’re 6 months or 6 years from retirement, whether you’ve saved tens, hundreds or millions of dollars, we want to make sure you’re checking ALL of your boxes.
And after we’ve covered some of those fundamentals, we’re going to talk about some of the things that are coming down the pipe in 2018 that we need to be aware of as we’re planning.
- How will the new tax plan affect your finances, how you plan, and what are the challenges and opportunities that come with it?
- What’s next on the President and Congress’s agenda? How might that impact you?
- And what do we see on horizon when it comes to macro-economics, The Federal Reserve, Interest rates, and the markets in general?
This is a show you’re going to want to stick around for, folks.
