I mega NASDAQ from the retirement news network glad to have you with us today or retire right with Allan Becker and it's always a pleasure to be sitting here with Allen he's the founder and president of retirement solutions group conveniently located right at 435 in Metcalf an Overland Park.

Start off our show today Allen despite turning the calendar back for a second back in the seventies and eighties you know it was a time of spiking oil prices we had double digit interest rates and of course we had skyrocketing inflation. The cost for goods and services in the US listen to this increased by 11% 13% and 10% in three consecutive years in the late seventies and early eighties. Allan we know inflation's no we are near those levels today but why isn't such a concern for today's retirees. And make it always a pleasure being here you know thankfully. Here in the US has doubled as inflation's. That you mentioned you know they were short lived we have not anything close those inflation figures cents. And act you have to go back about 1992. I the year which inflation exceeded 5%. We shouldn't consider ourselves as we get older and I know we look towards retirement and you know inflation as a as a real act that we all need to consider watch closely you know. When an inflation rate is it's been relatively low for many years and we don't wanna run and hyperinflation moon and so there's all these concerns at inflation's gonna need. Catch up. So I know Alan inflation really can pose some big challenges to people in retirement but. The news is there are some steps we can take today to protect ourselves to protect our nest egg really from some of the challenges. What I think we should be aware of in terms of inflation and some of its impact is we're looking to retirement and trying to prepare. Omega retirement is supposed to be a time where you know we get to really focus on enjoying the fruits of our labor you know they call on the golden years. And we hopefully have the time and enough money to pursue our light schools to do some of the stuff that we've been putting off what we're working. You know kind of figured out bucket list so to speak in that retired reality is of course. It should be within our reach in that risks are part of reality too and there's so many risks out there the American college of financial services. They recently did a fight over eighteen distinct risks that we face in retirement. And these are rats that can eat away at retirement and you know not addressed. Can really be an issue and inflation and is definitely one of those eighteen grass. You know many of the others. We all know all too well the health care risk longevity risk interest rate the risk of you losing a spouse of summer we can control. But many of them most of them we just can't. OK so can talk about why inflation is considered such a huge risk to retirement income. You gotta look at the past just to see what the future holds coming remember when. Bread cost fifty cents a low amount to over four dollars or I believe I read an article that said you know her. Outs org Allan waters more expensive than milk. But but no Cologne Manning I have young kids at home that did trinket like it's going out of style. It's expensive compared to what it was in the power are purchasing power is reduced so we need to know where every dollar going in and so weakened plan for retirement at. Goes to one of those common topics we talk about quite off on the show Megan which is how I'm gonna budget retirement and how do you budget for something that you don't know what it's going to be. So we have to look at inflation often called the silent killer because if you don't plan to make room in your budget in year. You're on your retirement dollars to cover those increasing costs. You're gonna do a lot. You have to do a lot more with a lot lesson and we really want to. Make sure that where you know that its top of the mine awareness that work thinking of these. And inflation some people look at 2% some people look at three. And you know yo the hundred year averages around 3% so it's. Really important to plan for your retirement. And if inflation doesn't go as high paid than your money's Angola further if it goes a little higher the you have to make adjustments and if you just ignore inflation. It's gonna play at a wreak Havoc on out of personal retirement so. It's just needs to be a good set top of the line awareness. You know when you're concerned about your present financial situation can be really hard to think about the future.

So Allan why should retirement minded people pay such close attention to inflation what's really at stake here. Well Megyn I think we all get it to retirees they're particularly vulnerable to inflation bottom line is they tend to rely more on a fixed income source such as interest payments. Pensions Social Security things that are gonna come in and and may not keep up with inflation enough. So we really have to consider what it's gonna take to maintain our current senator of living as the price of goods serves as a they continue to write. An Allen in what ways do you see as an advisor do you see inflation impacting the person who may be is near retirement or may even already in retirement. Well you know inflation he tracks her personal purchasing power. I kind of container just recently took a trip to a Europe that I had. Traveled between the pounds in the Euro and and just looking at what the dollar does over in Europe and I can buy assailant Cherie is McDonald's for five dollars and then go over there and in her to England and by that same saying much for five bureau. But the exchange rate to dollar 52 dollars formerly paying gets closer to 758. For the same goods and services I was paying foreign states you know that's not really inflation because we're talking about. You know difference of the dollar vs. Another. Currency that is it can still give you that concept is how far your money going because as an American I'm sitting there counting my dollars and thinking. I'm paying for you know. Getting a lot. The same thing for a lot more. So my money's not going as far it's the same thing retirement got to make choices when you go somewhere your living on a budget or you're traveling on a budget. As to how are your money go so as a retiree. You're gonna be looking at traveling you're going to be looking at living in here on a fixed income. So you don't have the same discretionary income are saying you don't have the ability or you're not maybe you don't want to go get a part time job or. Or should bring in other income so what you have is what you have. He really have to out of position correctly so that your not taking undue risks such as market loss or business rate risk or. Interest rate risk you've got to really set things up silly geoghan make it valid to retirement. But her retirement as the biggest fear that I find for retirees is run out of money in a second biggest is taxes and that's where you really have to look it. Appropriate tax clinic which is one of the Ares are route they were retirement process on a local over in your route they review. Which is you know. Just looking your overall planning in the sense of the government always seems to it to wanna get their fingers in into the pot.

I'm reading your pain odd times a lot higher taxes for ever and there's not a lot you can do about it if you don't start planning now.
