Living on a fixed income can be difficult. Do you know how taxes will affect your financial health in retirement?
The purchase of life insurance is typically triggered by a life event, such as marriage, the birth of a child, a home purchase or a job promotion. So, it is not uncommon for many people to change their life insurance coverage three or four or even eight times throughout their lifetime.
In a few short years, it seems as though the banking industry has revolutionized. It is now easier (and more convenient than ever) to tend to your banking needs, all from the comforts of your pyjamas. Gone are the notions of banking hours, and the never ending lineups when you want to deposit your paycheck.
While you might have been planning your retirement for many years, there may come a time when you need to retire earlier than expected.
Life insurance is universally recognized as an essential pillar of a financial plan for providing much needed capital in the event of a breadwinner. It is also fundamental to other planning needs, such as estate planning to pay for settlement costs and taxes, and business planning for business continuation or key person protection.
This is probably the question financial planners are asked the most when clients walk in to discuss retirement freedom. A simple question, in theory, but not an easy answer. Understanding what your optimal retirement savings are means peace of mind in your golden years.

At 36 years old, Jennifer had it all – a growing practice, 3 excellent employees and a beautiful suite in a new medical complex.
