Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
Barry H Spencer and Scott Noble, two Atlanta entrepreneurs, financial educators, tax and retirement planning specialists, surveyed retirees and future retirees about their retirement plans and preparations. They discovered an overwhelming number of them live with uncertainties about the future.
Owners of IRA, 401k, and other retirement assets are concerned about having enough for their lifestyle as taxes continue to increase on money being set aside for retirement. Additionally, there are concerns about future costs of healthcare, long-term care expenses, and the rising cost of living.
Too many owners of retirement assets have done what they’ve been told are the right things to do, but now wonder if those decisions are going to work when they need them to work the most – in retirement.
Planning for retirement is now the focus of the largest and most influential generation in U.S. history. With one American turning 60 every seven seconds – that’s more than 12,500 people every day according to the U.S. Census – the Baby Boomer generation in overwhelming numbers entering their retirement years.
By 2030, those 65-plus will double to about 71.5 million and by 2050 it will grow to 86.7 million people.
This means the largest retirement population the country has ever known is forming now. For retirees and those nearing retirement, it means more questions being asked with fewer answers being found - leading to greater uncertainty.
Millionaire retirees are experiencing even greater confusion because what once seemed so simple – their lifestyle, source of their paycheck, and creating certainty about the future – is now more complex.
As this generation searches for answers, there is a growing recognition of few adequate answers being found.
“A big problem for retirees looking for answers is that the answers are being masked by a financial industry that speaks in ‘financial lingo’ that sounds like a foreign language. To create more retirement income and enjoyment, retirees need clear simple answers to their real-world questions,” says Barry Spencer, creator of The Wealth With No Regrets a Registered Trademarked Process.
Adding to the complex picture of preparing for and entering retirement is the growing complexity and burden of the constantly changing tax law that now includes over 37 tax brackets. For instance, the top ten percent of income earners now bear 42% more of the federal income tax being paid which accounts for three quarters of the federal income tax paid.
Additionally, rising healthcare costs, and longer lifestyle needs have taken the fear of outliving their money in retirement to an all time high.
Spencer’s survey of retirees and future retirees revealed that financial and personal desire questions are going unanswered leading to incomplete planning or unexecuted wealth plans – adding fuel to the pile of uncertainties.
Traditional planning methods – financial planning and estate planning – leave retirement asset owners wondering if they have done all they can to preserve and protect the hard-earned dollars they’ve set aside for retirement.
In his book, "The Secret of Wealth With No Regrets", Spencer provides his unique and unfortunate experience with a traditional wealth plan that didn't work out as his father hoped. It's a real-world perspective on the pitfalls and dangers of not doing all that you can to protect and preserve for the future.
Rick DeVos, billionaire businessman and owner NBA Orlando Magic says, “Too few wealthy people ask the bigger questions. As the co-founder of a family business who has taken these steps, I can highly recommend Barry Spencer’s book.”
Combining the personal wealth lessons described in Spencer's latest book to the research he and his business partner, Scott Noble, have conducted, plus their personal wealth experiences, and their work with millionaire retirees and future retirees they have designed a special briefing that reveals the five most overlooked and under-utilized tax saving and income generating retirement strategies.
On Thursday, May 8 at two convenient times Spencer and Noble are providing a free live in-person briefing for retirement asset owners. Attendees of this special briefing will learn the five proven strategies to increase income in retirement, how to access substantial income tax deductions, how to reduce and even eliminate income taxes on an IRA, and avoid the five wealth predators that steal away a freedom lifestyle.
