[05/01/19]   Retirement Goals

The irony of today’s workplace is that you need to think about retirement as soon as you start working. But it’s hard. Student loans stand at record levels, while rising rents in American cities make it hard to build emergency savings.

We believe in creating world class savers and and help hard working Americans understandwhat their retirement looks like. The goal is to pay yourself between 12 and 20 percent in a retirement vehicle.

Let’s say you and your spouse are 35, plan on retiring at 67 and earn $100,000 annually combined. You have $20,000 total across your two 401(k)s and save 10 percent of your income. If you plan to replace 80 percent of your income when you retire, expect 2 percent raises each year and plan to live to 90, you’ll need about $1.4 million in savings.

“You have to factor in what your expenses are going to be and how long you expect to live,” says PNC Wealth Management’s Leanna Johannes.

All of those “if’s” and expectations, which don’t include projected investment returns, may make you queasy.

If you dont know what your retirement picture looks like PLEASE contact myself or Manny Ortuño (senior agency director) today and schedule an appointment to plan your future.

The idea of retirement arriving earlier than you planned might sound like a good thing, but for many people it is not what they planned and it can bring about big challenges.

“Many retirees who retired earlier than planned cite hardships for leaving the work force when they did, including health problems or disability, changes at their company, such as downsizing or closure, and having to care for a spouse or another family member.”

Did you know that 50% of retirees end up leaving the workforce earlier than they had “planned?”

The Employee Benefit Research Institute’s Retirement Confidence Survey has consistently found that a large percentage of retirees leave the work force earlier than planned. Many retirees who retired earlier than planned cite hardships for leaving the work force when they did, including health problems or disability (60 percent), changes at their company, such as downsizing or closure (27 percent), and having to care for a spouse or another family member (22 percent). Others say changes in the skills required for their job (10 percent) or other work-related reasons (22 percent) played a role.*

Some people can’t imagine a time when they wouldn’t be working. Others may plan to give up some of their current responsibilities once they retire, but still work to produce some income in retirement. While many people may plan to work during their retirement years (in some way or another), it doesn’t always work out the way you plan. Sometimes the job income opportunities may discontinue, even earlier than planned, due to:

• Health issues

• Family/dependent care responsibilities

• Economic conditions (position being eliminated, company closing, etc.)

• Inability to find suitable work

If working during retirement is part of your retirement income plan, you also need to make plans in case a job income isn’t available. What is your plan if the unexpected happens?

It isn’t always easy to put saving and planning for retirement at the top of our priority list. But issues like these show why it is important to plan for retirement now and continually review your plan.

[12/15/17]   This is one of the powerful stories ive ever heard.

" August 5, 2014, I was faced with something no mother should ever have to go through. My son at 8 years old, Cesar Hernandez as some may know as “Babysito,” passed away from a congenital heart failure. It was the hardest moment of my life, it got hard when I had to make funeral arrangements for my son. Picking out all of these different things, while your body is in shock and your state of mind is not ready to deal with any of this, The funeral home explained to me the price of everything and said if it's not paid in full its unfortunate, however, he will have to stay in the freezer. My heart dropped at just the thought. My sister-in-law and my brother and others in my family really pushed hard to help me get the funds. Go fund me page went up, Plate sales were done and Donations came in but it still wasn’t enough, if it weren't for my brother and my sister-in-law, for telling me not to worry about it they would take care of it, I don’t know what I would have done. If you have the support great, however if you don’t you need a Insurance policy that will provide what your family needs to help you pay for your expenses when your gone because even after the fact I did not have a job to pay my bills and the money I was getting was going to stop because my baby was gone so I had to push my grieving way down deep and get myself up and go to work. A life insurance policy whether it was on me or him could have helped me with these problems and I could have had the time to peacefully grieve my son and not worry about the bills and funeral cost, let me help you financially, and let’s get you covered now so you don’t have to go through what I did!"

Our Story

Mark Delapena knows firsthand how proper financial preparation can protect a family and provide generational wealth, and it is his life’s mission to empower family’s to make informed financial decisions.

Mark has a background in construction and hard labor, and he saw hardworking providers around him get injured and watched their families struggle financially. Working in that industry and feeling like he wasn’t valued enough and seeing how an injury or illness could affect a family financially, he realized “there has to be a better way!”.

Mark set out to find the best way to help individuals and families protect themselves financially, while teaching others how to do the same. The easiest part of Mark’s work is finding families who need his help, and the hardest part of his work is telling a family that it’s too late beause they waited too long. People wait too long when they don’t know what their options are, and Mark has built an army of educators to touch as many families as possible to prevent that from happening.

The crusade for financial freedom and financial literacy is Mark’s calling, and his mission is to help as many people as he can. Don’t wait for an opportunity for financial freedom and financial literacy when it’s in front of you....take it!
