The Dangers of a Pension-Less America.

Do current financial uncertainties, like not having a pension, have you concerned about retirement?  If so, your not alone. “Only 13% of Americans with at least $1 million in investible assets feel wealthy… The fear of running out of money in retirement and their reliance on their own savings – rather than Social Security and employer-funded pensions- make it harder for even well-positioned Americans to feel financially wealthy…” – USA Today

The prevailing financial and economic uncertainty has led even the most financially successful individuals to grapple with confidence. A staggering 82% of Americans, which equates to roughly eight out of ten, reveal that recent events have significantly affected their retirement plans, as per the findings of the State of Retirement Planning Study.

Where do we turn for help?  Where can you seek impartial leadership, profound insights, and effective tools to ensure you don’t miss out on addressing your challenges and concerns?

  • Sales representatives masquerading as “retirement advisors,” whose sole aim is to persuade you to transfer your hard-earned savings into their so-called “exceptional” product?
  • Accountants, while adept at filing taxes, may not necessarily have the requisite skills to steer through the potential retirement and financial pitfalls we previously discussed.
  • Friends, business colleagues, or family members who have only experienced retirement once and may be eager to provide advice about your circumstances. However, they might not be fully aware of all the crucial details about your situation.
  • Various media platforms, including television, talk shows, newspapers, magazines, and blogs predominantly employ tactics of fear and greed to escalate their viewership, listenership, or readership.

It’s no wonder that retirement financial stress is at an all time high with 3 out of 4 Americans are exceeding the point of stress to full blown anxiety.  Health is our most prized possession yet people don’t realize the impact money stress is having on their health.
