Retirement Calculator

When it comes to retirement planning, you should consider …

• How much money do I need to retire?
• What will my monthly expenses be?
• What impact will inflation have on my spending?
• How long will my retirement savings need to last?
• How will I invest in retirement?
• Why is asset allocation so important?
• When should I start Social Security?
• How does Medicare work?
• What are retirement withdrawal strategies?
• What is a buckets strategy?
• What is my net worth and how do I compare?

This book is a valuable resource but is intended to complement the online tools found at This book aims to help you answer some of the most often asked questions and fill in the gaps that the calculator does not currently compute.

The Retirement Budget Calculator is designed for the do-it-yourself crowd and is a powerful online tool that can help you plan your retirement, and help you know if you have enough money to last throughout your retirement years.

If you are a recent retiree or within 5 years of retirement, I highly recommend this book and the Retirement Budget Calculator to help you navigate your transition.

With straightforward advice, Parker helps you plan a retirement based on what’s important to you — your personal values, your relationships, as well as your financial goals. This book can give you out-of-the-box ideas to help you:
• Focus your retirement planning on what is most important to you

• Maximize your Social Security income
• Get your legal documents in order
• Optimize your tax planning

• Diversify your accounts to adjust to this new economy

The world has changed dramatically in the last couple of years. The government is printing money at an unbelievable pace. Ten thousand baby boomers are retiring every day. Taxes are at historical all-time lows and likely to go up. Our national debt is, as I write this, currently more than 17 trillion dollars. Our government has recently bailed out financial institutions, taken over private companies, and has voted for one of the largest overhauls to our healthcare system in our country’s history. The stock market’s volatility is high, and what once appeared to be sage advice has turned into questionable theory. In fact, some people have recently said that “buy and hold” in the new economy should now be titled “buy, hold, and hope.”

But more important than any of these external factors is making sure you have money for your retirement. As the president of a wealth management firm that specializes in retirement, Jason Parker has had the opportunity to meet with hundreds of people and help them on this very important journey into and through retirement.

When he meets with people, they generally share the same five primary concerns:

•   They never want to become a burden to their family either physically or financially.

•   They don’t want to run out of money before they run out of retirement.

•   They want to pay in a legal manner as little in taxes as possible.

•   They want to earn a fair rate of return on their money and outpace inflation with the least amount of volatility in their retirement portfolio.

•   This last concern is probably the biggest one of all. They fear making an irreversible mistake.

While Jason certainly doesn’t plan to fix all of the country’s problems with this book, he does plan on giving you a system for getting the very most out of your retirement and helping you to implement a plan to achieve:

   •   Clarity
   •   Confidence & 
   •   Freedom
