Will Money Management in Retirement Be Easier Than You've Heard?
Will you have enough money in retirement?
In fact, you’re more likely to grow your wealth in retirement than run out of money. In this episode, Kevin Mahoney, CFP®, who specializes in college financial planning for Millennial parents, discusses money management in retirement. In particular, he reviews data showing that your spending is most likely to decline as you get older. In addition, the worst-case financial scenario that you may fear in retirement probably won’t happen.
Instead, Kevin will encourage you to focus on what you can control: investing consistently over an extended period of time. And he’ll emphasize that, while you’re doing so, you may want to allow yourself the possibility that compounding growth may actually make money management in retirement easier than you currently assume.
