LIFE AND ANNUITIES
When people are in their 30s and 40s, they have three key financial concerns: making sure their mortgage is protected, ensuring their children are able to attend college, and protecting their income in the event of an early death of a bread-winner.
But as people get closer to retirement age, these concerns have lessened. Mortgages are paid off. Children are grown, and have jobs of their own. But what many people don’t realize is that a whole new set of concerns have been introduced.
Retirement funds are subject to stock market volatility, increasing tax risks and unfavorable interest rates. Social security, which was created as a personal savings account for Americans, is in jeopardy. Social Security is funded by current workers to support retirees, but the next decade will see the largest drop in worker-to-beneficiary ratios in history. Future payouts may not be enough to rely on. Furthermore, if one spouse dies, the surviving spouse is at risk of losing thousands of dollars in future social security benefits.
Health care costs are a concern as well. The average couple retiring at age 65 can expect to pay $220,000 in out-of-pocket medical expenses during retirement.
At AlSol, we partner with life insurance companies who address these risks through a series of innovative life insurance products and riders to protect against financial longevity risks and the costs of serious chronic or critical illnesses.
As people approach and enter their retirement years, some of their primary concerns are:
- Running out of money during retirement,
- Having enough guaranteed income to meet their basic needs,
- Keeping up with inflation throughout retirement,
- Experiencing significant losses in the stock market.
