"Click" Linda and watch her explain the Personalized Analysis.
The Personalized Analysis shows how your savings can be divided into multiple segments, each one earmarked to produce monthly income during various phases of your retirement: years 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, 16-20 and 21-25. The goal is to increase your income as you age.
Your income plan will typically include a "Floor," made up of those income sources which are stable and predictable- Social Security, pensions and income from annuities- and an "Upside," which is that portion of your savings exposed to investment risk. In this way, some of your money is exposed to market-based growth potential, but your base monthly income is always predictable because it is produced by income sources that are not exposed to market risk. This is the key to a disciplined plan that seeks to keep pace with inflation, and that you can keep consistent with throughout retirement and through all economic conditions.
Investments in model strategies may expose the investor to risks inherent with the model and the specific risks of the underlying investment directly proportionate to their allocation. All investments involve the risk of potential investment losses, including the loss of some or all of your principal.
