Estimating the True Cost of Retirement – David Blanchett

Retirement is the most expensive “purchase” faced by most individuals.

In order to properly forecast the value of assets during retirement, it is important to consider several other variables when estimating a person’s total retirement liability, such as their optimal replacement rate, their forecasted retirement period, and what it truly means to fail (or succeed).

Retirement professionals need to have a framework for understanding and projecting retirement costs for each client, and a process for better estimating the true cost of retirement.


In this one-hour session, you will learn:
