The De-Coupling of Retirement Planning

If you believe you and your spouse are nearing the age of retirement . . . those blissful days when you can simply enjoy each other’s company and grow old together, think again. 

The odds are you and your spouse are not on the same page about retirement.  Consider the following statistics:

  • 73% of couples disagree on whether or not they have completed a detailed retirement income plan
  • 62% of couples don’t agree on their expected retirement ages
  • 47% of couples don’t agree on whether they will continue to work in retirement
  • 33% of couples don’t agree on lifestyle expectations

Sure, you may believe that you are not one of the above statistics, but do you really want to wait and find out when one of you is on the retirement doorstep?  Instead of postponing the inevitable conversation, start talking with your spouse now.

Read this to learn more about what specific conversations you should be entering into with your spouse about your retirement objectives.
