Retirement Income Advisors in
Charleston, SC


You likely want to do what you want, when you want, with whom you choose, at your pace. It is also likely the following concerns are holding you back:

  • How do you turn your retirement savings into a reliable paycheck?
  • How much can you safely spend on the things that bring you joy in life without worrying about running out of money?

Retirement income is the centerpiece of retirement planning because in retirement, running out of money is never an option. However, leaving behind a mattress stuffed full of money is also not winning the game. Your retirement income must keep you somewhere between the two, no matter what.

Unfortunately, we cannot control the market. So, we use a method to create retirement income (e.g., a portfolio paycheck) for you based on an upper guardrail and a lower guardrail, to keep you on track given the ups and downs of the market.

  • If your portfolio goes up past the upper rail, good news, you can give yourself a raise.
  • On the other hand, if your portfolio goes down past the lower rail, you may need to take less money temporarily to ensure you do not run out.

By being willing to temporarily spend a little less when the markets are down, you can spend much more when the markets are up. This means you have a reliable portfolio paycheck, and you can preserve your portfolio for a lifetime!!!
