I guess sudoku is the big thing you know the last couple years now I don't know do you play I don't know I don't I don't do and I do my crew through them yes. I remember when I would visit my grandparents up in Maine. And you know we've they just would Graham won't be there doing her puzzles and she was just just a petition sharp as a wit they would just. Kind of rattle off answers to every possible question so we're gonna have little fun on today show the crossword puzzle is coming up that's going to be a segment that you don't want to mess but. We always like to start off the program with answering your questions he can submit those by going to financial symphony dot com gives us chance to. Pepper Richard with a couple different topics and questions to start off the show. David in Charlotte will get this going this week Richard. Dave says can you clarify forming whether I can start my Social Security benefit in still earn an income. Or not I've heard a different things and I'm confused about my options. My you know Social Security that first time you can consider taking so securities and age 62. The closure qualified. And you get two benefits as earlier 62 but if you show working and and you begin benefits six into your benefits will be decreased if you're earned income was above this threshold is established by the IRS. If you reach your full retirement age for example in 2008 came. You can earn up to 14120. Dollars per month before benefits are decreased so for every two dollars earned above. 14120. Dollars per month. One dollar will be withheld from your Social Security benefits now if you reach your full retirement age to Warren 2008 team. He can earn up to 3780. Per month. Without affecting your Social Security but for every three dollars that you earn above 3700. Million dollars per month. One dollar will be held. And only the months before the month you reach for retirement will be considered so if your income doesn't exceed these threshold your benefits won't be cut. You know income above the threshold will cause some of your folks hurting benefits to be reduced. However your benefits arm off entirely. Because once you reach your full retirement age your benefits will be permanently increase. Because of these with Holden so you don't lose those dollars forever. So if you're still working and sit down for the retirement income planner and determine the best course of action for your specific needs it's important to put a plan in place. To ensure income to remain comparable for the entirety of your retirement years. And that includes your best case scenario has to win you should begin taking Social Security kind of. Truth be a really good question their David a lot of people have questions about social security and if you are one of them. Don't hesitate to root reach out to Richard preacher alien that number to call once again is 8064659. And 96. That's 8064659. 96. I have got a question here from Leo as we top down to Fort Mill Leo says is it wise to have the trust is part of my financial and state plan. It seems that a lot of people I know have one. When are the primary reason one might consider trust is to avoid probate and keep your affairs private you know you can achieve that. By using a revoke of living trust but trust are used for other reasons and there are several types of trust dependent on your specific needs. It almost review. Will probably not needed trust you can avoid probate without the need of a trust for example your bank accounts. Can avoid probate by Phil now pay on death for a major bank. And your individual investment accounts for non qualified accounts for non higher rate counts. Can avoid probate by title when you're county ODs. Were transfer on death. And to avoid probate with your higher grade 41 K or your Roth IRA he simply named beneficiaries under custodial designation beneficiary form. With the administrator historian of your qualified account. You know I think the biggest factor in deciding whether to create a living trust is your world. At the risk of oversimplifying. The welter you wore the more you can say for your interiors by your board and probate. And the type of assets you own is important as well for example. Owners of small business or other assets that you don't want entire dorm probate might push you to create a living trust. He met there's only a small chance that you'll die soon you don't want to risk making your exact to report to a judge for your more if you died unexpectedly. So if you think you might need to trust. You know you need to do sit down within a state and professional they can help you determine which type of trust is most appropriate for you. However can understand and of the estate planning goals that are trust may help you achieve. He's a good starting point so make sure you meet with the financial professional and begin the financial planning process. Really good question there Leo I know that this is we spend so much time worrying about. Investments in return in growth and risk sometimes by the time you get to talking about. And the state plan in trusts Richard some folks just get an energy by that point and I feel like it falls by the wayside in a lot of conversations. But you know a lot of the individual doctors that take care of our retirees. Focus on wealth accumulation and don't focus on overall retirement plan and any retiree plan should include. You know how those assets that you've grown over the years are gonna be transferred to the next generation. Gap big questions when it comes to the state planning make sure that you're getting. The right kind of guidance and does some help from the correct resources and and ask those questions that's really the important part here. And that's that your doing Leo we thank you for that question. If you've got questions for Richard dutrow really again the opportunity to reach out today 8064659. 96 start a conversation about your financial concerns. 8064659. 96. One more question on the request line portion of our program where we answer. Your concerns here on the financial symphony Marshall in Moore's film has our next question. I have a variable annuity says Marshall and I just found out that the fees are very time. I'd like to move the money somewhere else but I have to pay a penalty to take it out is it worth the penalty to get away from the high feeds. Where there are some options for those of you have a very good movie contract with a very high fees. But any transaction. Their results and losses is generally not in your best interest so before finalizing your decision to eat the penalty. It would determine your financial objective to better qualified to best option for you. He almost advisors that recommend a new duties. Don't they usually do so to generate income that you can't outlive. If that was the primary reasons for purchasing your very moody. Then what you might wanna do is consider performing at 1035 exchange to a fixed indexed annuity. There are no tax consequences and not only will you eliminate those high fees you'll also eliminate market losses. And if a surrender charge or penalty fee is imposed on the cancellation or your variable annuity. You know many fixed annuities provide an upfront bonus to help eliminate the surrender charge or make you whole again. You know but another option. Would be two dollar cost average back into the market by utilizing the withdrawal provision inherent in most variable annuities you know many contracts. Allow you would draw up to 10% of the contract value without penalty. But withdraw money from a new can be costly if you make we're girl before you reached the age of 59 and a half. As you'll be required to pay Uncle Sam a 10% early withdrawal penalty as well as regular income tax on your investment earnings you know so we knew he served. A very specific purpose. And herbal duties are just one type of a new V so all annuities are not created equal you know and duties can be a great choice in the right circumstances for the right. Reasons here on the difference between making a good decision. And a bad decision to other can have a very dramatic impact on how are you retire you know the question isn't can I knew or should you put your money work for you retirement. It's how you do that. You're all boils down by the fact that all the pieces of your financial puzzle need to sit together. So what I like to do is offer you the opportunity come in for complete financial review.

How much do you pay any fees or commissions with your current plan. What about the tax implications of your statement is there a way to save money in taxes down the road by planning proactively today. Do you have an income plan in place to be sure that you aren't in danger of running out of money if you end up Livan thirty more years in retirement.

Richard I'm curious this week what unique. Family traditions. Does your family had weeks celebrate Christmas Eve with a feast of the seven vicious but he's he's nervous seven fishes more details were. It's well it's more of a Catholic tradition worth. You know Catholics were expected to abstain from eating meat or products derived from animals on Fridays or holy days with Christmas Eve. Being one of the designated days on which troops staying I loved it when I was younger I didn't matter from a religious standpoint so much as it did the food. That you know my mom always told me that. The number of fish corresponded. To the number of days in a week and the time it took Mary Joe's the travel to Bethlehem so. That's what I know about the fees in the seventh issues I do know that some families. You know will you more than seven now some people do not mean. Which is a holy trinity multiplied by three some people do twelve. Which references a number of apostles so others will do ten which is designates the stations of the cross you know for me all a matter committee was a linguine and anchovies. Thoughts that go into. A that was clearly. And until we saw so if so is all as the name says it's all fit tried different types of seafood and fish that's Kurtz it's meant to solve official Mena scallops mussels shrimp column artery. Lobster ravioli community causes we have different ones you know. Hmmm I'm getting hungry now how my guys. Thank thank you for that Richard kind of go eat some lunch I think there's better ways to do their Christmas leave so I think that you become a once a week tradition the feast of the seven fishes at them like pretty pretty good meal right there.

On Christmas city my grandparents live and Maine and that's where we go every other year so I guess it's an every other year tradition that. It's always if you come out and see them for Christmas you get lobster on Christmas Eve which is pretty cool. That's the feast of the one fiction or the fees are one fisherman go to Africa for fourth ethical ethical tradition thanks for sharing. For sure the taste of the seven fishes were all Nolan Richardson after Christmas. 'cause there there will get back to the financial talk coming up this is the financial sense for what. It's time for another musical connections where we blend the worlds of music can finance together. Here's friend of the show financial advisor and musician of more glory with bronze dusts. This is a musical connection hero in today's edition of the financial symphony and run that's mark Lloyd is here of course and a mark. Door negative fans we've been talking about today indoors music. What we can learn about retirement planning from the doors most popular song and of course light my fire. Jim Morrison indicated on several occasions in his notebooks. That he hated light my fire and hated performing it. Also this came to resents the song's popularity. Because he had just a small part in writing it. But if there are several martial system in this OK and everything that the this is Jim Morrison retarded idea but of course he never bled on publicly because he feared it could have heard the group financially. And my question do you is it knowing that Jim Morrison was kind of crazy and away bit. And knowing that Jim Morrison felt this way about that particular song but he didn't let on publicly. What is our financial connection here. Oh boy this is a means you won on this is an easy one. And I hate this I hate this when I hear of these types of stories. And I hate it for our industry. But I'll let me just say that the government has gotten involved in our industry. And we're fiduciary. And fiduciary to mean that we work for our clients. We don't work for stock brokers we don't work for banks we don't work for new people in our ears tell us what we need to recommend we work for our clients and that's the way it should be. But for years and years and years Rodham almost soap box I'm sorry affair but for years and years and years it wasn't that way. There were broker stockbrokers out there are selling products. You know selling securities. At some level just build the products were bad they just weren't good. But they sold it for this bad word on get rate tag you ready okay. The C word commission following here there commission. Yelled maybe it's because it pays them the death. May be because they were trying to win a trip. Folks you don't need to be working with people like that. At a again our industry is in note it's evolving and they're trying to clean this stuff up. But it's a hard lobby to be there's people up there in Washington right now trying to beat. Trying to fight against it and let me just say that. Here on the financial symphony we have surrounded ourselves. With folks that care. That care about you do. And hear about your lifestyle and care about your needs and care about your goals they care about your dreams. And that's the way it should be this is a service business. We serve our clients. In this not about what pays off the most. And the folks who don't think it our industry like that the the ones that are greedy. When we hear about greed Ron the first thing that comes in everybody's mind birdie made all right men and exactly nothing extreme just a crook. And there's plenty of crooks there's the laundry list of crooks that are been in our business you know for centuries you know about I guess it's a sentry decades. But at the end of the day that's double where talked about on this talk about the person. Who might be greedy the broker who might be greedy. It might just kind of perm their head a little bit or turn their back and say. You know maybe its missiles will be okay because this will really help me if five push this model I push this product I push this solution. I push this strategy. And that's the way it should not be that way Iran it should be what makes the most sense for our clients. And unfortunately and at 27 years of doing this I've seen folks come through our doors here that have been hurt financially. Because of greed and I feel so sorry for. I mean how will this do back flips and do anything I can do anything I can help these folks. Beyond the call of duty left feel so sorry for.

You might think the you've got the right answer for seventeen across. It's just can't figure out the answer to thirteen down that starts with the letters. XC. Just so numerous possibilities for what that could be your. A little problem is that you have the wrong answers seventeen across of course and that X should really be an ass or something like that. In retirement planning one wrong answer can really make a mess of the rest of your plan these things that go wrong don't happen in a vacuum. They have kind of a cascading or domino effect on all the other things so we're talking about some of the areas Richard. That are common it where you see people think they have the right answer much like in an example of crossword puzzle but in reality they don't have that right answer. One of these areas has to be when it comes to income and determining how much of that you're gonna need in retirement lot of people's. Reality doesn't lineup with what they think is happening there. That's true you know everyone now has a different picture. Of what retirement will look like in the amount of money you'll need to retire. Can be much more this could be far less than I was your age you know what you want to do. Is come up with a personal testament you know you start by calculating. The amount of money you want to spend each month to remain comparable throughout retirement. In art college in become you're required income you're required income covers things like housing and food transportation insurance. You know those type of things this. And it's the most important gold satisfying when put together your retirement income plan. Now if you want to spend more on retirement obviously you're gonna need to have more saved. And this income is what we call lifestyle income. This is the income that will satisfy your desires you know your hobbies your travel. Maybe family events things like that. This income is less reliable as the assets needed to fund your lifestyle income. Are probably gonna fluctuate with market and be less conservative in that nature so you're required income. And your lifestyle income constitute church total retirement income. And your retirement age will also have a significant impact. On how much shown the dummy if you want to retire early obviously your need far more saved as someone who plans on working longer. We know realistically. You know you won't be able to really pin down your income needs to pay me. But it's important you trying to be as accurate as you can as research shows many people get it wrong you know for example. More than a quarter of the retirees cold firma a recent limerick secure retirement is to survey. You know said their required living expenses in retirement. Were higher than they anticipated prior to retirement and when it comes to health care you know one of the hardest retirement expenses to get a handle on. How after retirees in Wells Fargo study said that they were paying more than they expected so for most of you. You know we only retire wants to make sure you take the time the plan on how you intend or glacier working picture when you retire. The FC big area of concern for a lot of people and unfortunately one that. Can usually isn't correct in the way that they think they have the right answer on that new stores everything else off. After that another area where people think they have the right answer but they don't Richard would be when it comes to determining the proper amount of risk that you should have in your portfolio. We think about it you know for most of you you're investing lives. You were told. They should invest in a way that matches risk and return the implication the end that you should try to achieve the highest returns possible. Given the level of risk you can tolerate and when you're trying to accumulate a mistake large enough to support your retirement. In other approach makes sense you know once you retire though the goal for most of you is no longer to grow your nest egg as much as you can. But to ensure that the savings you've accumulated will be able to provide you with the income throughout retirement that could last up to thirty years or more. He's such as paradigm shift from wealth accumulation. To preservation and income will require eliminating the risk of loss because you don't have the time needed to rebound from a severe market downturn. What you want is stability and predictability in your retirement income plan. You want to be able to enjoy life without having to worry whether or severe bear market might force you to revise your plan. Unfortunately. Attempting to generate income by taking withdrawals from portfolio ball collapse this is an inefficient retirement income strategy. So another way investor knows if you're still working receiving a paycheck is just too risky for most of you. And listen chase and returned it never ends well. You can't control who returned but you can't control for risk the risk is to control factoring your retirement income plan he managed for a risk first and foremost. Yet another great example Richard and I appreciate the explanation there about risk big part of the conversation when it comes to retirement planning no doubt about it. Something else the should be a big part of the conversation unfortunately people are to think they have the right answer to this. And sometimes they end up being way off base is determining whether or not to have a life insurance then there's another layer to this question as well Richard. If so how much should have. And that's because most people equate life insurance with a death benefit in other replacing come. While you're you're Stanley has grown ones saved and for retirement. But you know some financial planners. Say if you plan well enough prior to retirement. That you won't need life insurance and that's just not the case more often than not you know you you you'll have no debt. Is their mindset you know plenty of assets to replace the income loss due to a death. Plenty of money leave your errors. I mean all sounds good on paper but it in reality it's quite different so you can you need to crunch the numbers you know what does your cash flow statement look like before and after. The death of the spouse I mean. If there's more than enough income to cover the surviving spouse living expenses were retirement. But you might not need life insurance but but if there's not enough income. He even after you factor in how much for Koppel has saved and where there that it. They can reliably provide them as far as I think you might need life insurance so for instance if one spouse. Has a pension. And did not elect a survivor benefit. Then there is likely a significant loss of income for the surviving spouse. And the need for life insurance you know illusions say you know 13. Of household income due to the death of a spouse doesn't translate into expansion being cut by 13. In many cases surviving spouse might be just as much he come after death of a spouse for a large central expenses such as housing your life insurance. Can also be used for other goal you know not just income replacement. I'm paying off debt it can also be used for state taxes you know taxes due on inherited diary distributions are taxes do. On nine deathbed Roth conversions of qualified accounts or for term plan. And many clients huge permanent life insurance policy with a writer for long term care to ensure courage in the event of chronic illness were protracted mershon Homestake. How much you purchase depends of course on your specific situation you know factors. Such as the surviving spouse's income these final expenses debts mortgage payments commercially expenses will help determine how much to purchase. The issue of how life insurance isn't your retirement and can be complex and will depend on your situation and what you're trying to accomplish. As with any other type of financial instrument review your needs. The site that makes sense to purchase a policy and then shop for the best coverage from a solid company has the best price. You don't plan for retirement Walter you know that we're talking about planning for an event that could last 203040. Years. And MS somewhat of a difficult task and you need reliable sources of retirement income that will career living expenses for the rest of your life.
