Facing the retirement conundrum of choosing between a lump sum or an annuity pension option? Our latest podcast episode unravels the intricacies of both options, highlighting the pros and cons using real client examples. We dissect a scenario where a client had to choose between a million-dollar lump sum and a lifetime annuity of $4,350 per month. And we don’t stop there – we dive into the impact of joint and survivor option, single life annuity, and elucidate the necessity of rolling your lump sum into an IRA for tax considerations. 

Our conversation doesn’t just stop at retirement options. We delve into the realm of early retirement, painting a vivid picture using the 4% rule and real-life client situations over different timeframes with an inflation assumption. We aim to empower you with a crystal-clear understanding of your options over 10, 20, and 30 years. And to top it all, we stress on the paramount importance of keeping an eye on the interest rates on your lump sum balance. 

But we’re not done yet. We venture into the area of pre-tax assets and the impact of the cost of living adjustment on your annuity. We believe in a holistic approach and, therefore, encourage our listeners to consider both financial and lifestyle aspects while making this crucial decision in life. To drive the point home, we discuss another real client situation, throwing light on taxes and other costs related to your pension. So gear up to gain valuable insights and make the most informed decision about your pension.
