The Importance of Regular Check-ins with Your Advisor

The Importance of Regular Check-ins with Your Advisor

Regular check-ins with your financial advisor are the cornerstone of maintaining financial security during retirement. Quarterly, biannual, or at least annual meetings ensure a proactive approach to staying on course with your retirement plan.

Our advisors play a critical role in keeping your portolio up to date and in line with your risk tolerance. We will regularly review your portfolio and other parts of your total financial picture to make sure your retirement remains on track. With Ntact, your peace of mind is our priority.

Implementing Fixed Index Annuities for Lifetime Income

Fixed Index Annuities (FIAs) are financial products designed to provide a combination of principal protection and the potential for interest growth based on the performance of a specific market index, such as the S&P 500. Adding Fixed Income Annuities into your total retirement income plan can greatly increase the probablility that you won't run out of money in your lifetime. Some great features of FIAs include:

  • Principal Protection: One of the primary advantages of FIAs is that they offer a guaranteed minimum interest rate, ensuring that your initial investment (principal) is protected from market downturns. 
  • Interest Crediting: The interest credited to the annuity is linked to the performance of a chosen market index. If the index performs well, the annuity earns interest based on a portion of that positive performance. 
  • Guaranteed Minimum Interest Rate: In addition to the potential for interest linked to the index, FIAs typically come with a guaranteed minimum interest rate. 
  • Lifetime Income Options: FIAs often include the option to convert the accumulated value into a stream of income payments, providing an income for the rest of your life. 
  • Tax Deferral: Like other annuities, the interest earned in a Fixed Index Annuity is tax-deferred. 
  • Lack of Direct Market Participation: While FIAs are linked to market indexes, they do not directly invest in stocks. Instead, they use a formula based on the index performance to determine interest credits. This can provide a level of protection against market volatility.

Monitoring and Optimizing Your Tax Status

Understanding the tax implications in retirement is paramount. Small tax inefficiencies can compound over time into the financial equivalent of major leaks. Ntact helps you review your tax status across various investment accounts, providing tips on optimizing tax efficiency to ensure you retain more of your hard-earned money during retirement.
