Wiser Retire
  • The Distribution Stage

    If you are here, you are at the stage in your life where you have either reached the age to retire, or you have received a lump sum of money and are not planning on returning to a job.  You have very different decisions to make than someone trying to accumulate money

Why Isn't The Financial Industry Teaching Distribution? 

Loss Of Fees

Financial Institutions are in the business of gathering and holding onto money.  Most advisors are not properly trained on strategic distribution options. If the banks and brokerage companies taught you how to withdraw money, they would lose fees.  

Under Educated

Very few CPAs, Lawyers or Financial Advisors have be educated in strategic distributions.  It takes an advisor with advanced training to integrate tax, legal, investment, insurance and strategic distributions. 

Disorganized Advice

Most advice is performed in silos.  You run to see your lawyer, then your CPA, then your insurance agent and finally your financial advisor.  How does each of these advisors communicate or do they at all?  Without a totally coordinated set of advisors, you are the one left to make sure your plan is coordinated. 

No Tax Or Legal Advice

Most Financial Advisors work for companies that do not allow them to talk about or plan using tax strategies.  You can see this on the bottom of statements and email signatures stating "We do not offer any legal or tax advice".  If a retirement planner cannot offer tax advice, then how can they plan?

If you have saved money into before tax retirement accounts with the intent of taking money out at a lower tax bracket than what you were in when working, you will be disappointed. Recent changes can cause up to a 100% increase in the tax paid on retirement accounts. Also, due to the recent SECURE act, the tax effect to children has increased.

What About Risk

What Is A Tax Efficient Income?

Taxes may be one of the biggest expenses you pay over your lifetime. 

Most financial institutions, advisors and even the do-it-yourself investor pays less attention to the net tax effect than they should.  If you have a 8% target rate of return you could net between 6.8% with an efficient distribution plan vs. as low as 4.8%.  That is 2% more in net return without taking more risk.
