Understanding Today’s Financial Environment

You have worked hard for decades accumulating a nest egg for retirement, and now that once-distant goal is coming sharply into focus. As you approach your retirement date, you will encounter many difficult decisions.

Do I have enough savings to meet my income needs in retirement?
Should I take my company pension as a lump sum, or should I opt to receive a monthly annuity?
What is the most appropriate mix of stocks, bonds, and alternative investments?
When should I start taking my Social Security benefits?
Do I need long-term care insurance?

These represent a sampling of the questions that render today's retirement investment landscape so daunting.
