It's Like Having Your Very Own Retirement Expert
Retirement planning can be complicated and confusing, which is why retirement planning professionals must study for many years to become proficient. Now while we all would love to have a Retirement Planner at our disposal, for many of us that is not an option at this point in our lives.
Enter Mastery POINT’s AdvicePlus!
The AdvicePlus Strategy Builder is a FREE and comprehensive retirement planning tool designed to develop a personal savings and retirement strategy based on information specific to YOU.
The tool will first will ask particular questions about you (and your spouse, if married) including current income, retirement balances, and investments outside of retirement accounts. It will also ask for your desired retirement age and retirement income (as a % of current income), and anticipated salary growth and savings amounts.
All of this data combined with your risk tolerance and out pops an Action Plan. This Action Plan tells you if you are likely to meet your goals and suggests what steps you should consider if you are not. This is not a simple calculator, but a real interactive tool.
Now this may sound like a lot of work, but it is actually very easy and will take you less than 10 minutes to do. And the results can be eye opening, and maybe even shocking. One thing you can bet on is after reviewing the Action Plan, you will either be adjusting parameters of your retirement planning, or you will be patting yourself on the back for being so great at saving for retirement. Either way, you will learn something.
