Retirement planning is one of the most popular reasons why someone does a financial counseling session with me. Typically, an employee comes into the session loaded with their retirement and social security statements, ready to hear that all of their hard work has paid off and they can retire yesterday. As soon as I find out that they are in a relationship, my next question is about how much joint retirement planning they’ve done with their partner. I usually hear that they have discussed the basics such as where they will live and how much income they may have, but that is generally as far as it goes. I encourage you to set aside time with your spouse, undistracted, to walk through the following questions that if not addressed, can be retirement income budget busters:
When do you want to retire? Discuss with your partner the financial consequences linked with the age of retirement. For example, if you or your partner decide to retire before 65, healthcare may take a big chunk out of your income. The 2017 average health insurance premium for a 60 year old is about $872 a month for a silver plan on the Affordable Care Act exchange. Consider using retirement calculators to estimate how much income you may receive and how the income may vary depending on when you and your spouse claim Social Security.
