welcome to redefining retirement where it's our job to help you enjoy financial security in any economy.
5:30 pm
educated decision on what is right for you. i know you're going to enjoy this so here's what's coming up. you want $36,000 a year and, obviously, you want it for the rest of your life. and you would probably like it to grow a little bit with inflation, so the question is: how are you going to proceed? wow! social security is great and provides some income and it is lifetime income, but that's it. if you don't have a pension or maybe you have a small pension, there's a lot of space in there. there's a big gap that has to be filled with your retirement savings. is one of these right and the other wrong? no, not at all. neither one of these is right and neither one is wrong.
