Common Retirement Planning Factors
In retirement planning, you have more to consider than just basic living expenses. Several factors may influence how much money you will need during your retirement years:
- Lifestyle preferences & spending – According to the American Institute of CPAs, 41% of CPA financial planners say “running out of money in retirement” and “maintaining current lifestyle and spending level” are top concerns for their clients, including high net-worth individuals.
- Effects of inflation – From 1999 to 2015, inflation ranged from 0.1-4.1%. Over the long run, inflation can have a real impact – from 2000 to 2015, the dollar’s buying power fell 26.4%, for example, according to the New Retirement Report from SafeMoney.com.
- Potential impact from market fluctuations – In a low interest-rate environment, down-market conditions can affect safety of retirement income and life savings. Looking over a 118-year period, the Dow Jones Industrial Average produced low returns for 71 years, or 60.2% of the time, according to data from Guggenheim Investments.
- Longevity risk – A retirement action plan may have to account for 20-25 years or longer of retirement living. According to the Social Security Administration, a 65-year-old couple has a 50% chance at least one partner will reach age 92. The Social Security Administration also projects that one out of ten 65-year-olds today will live past age 95.
- Health-related expenses – For people who retired in May 2016, the cost of healthcare is projected to increase slightly north of 5.1% for the next two decades, according to HealthView Services, a research company.
- Taxation – Excessive tax liability can greatly erode life savings and retirement income dollars.
To illustrate the far-range impact of retirement planning today – Pew Research estimates since January 2011, an additional 10,000 baby boomers have turned, and continue to reach, age 65 each day. Planning considerations as retirement asset allocation, wealth preservation, certainty of income, and risk management likely will play important roles in your retirement action plan.
