Sixties

Living off investments in your sixtiesWelcome to the typical retirement decade where it’s time to ensure a successful financial legacy by living off investments strategically. Governments and businesses across the world consider your sixty somethings the age in which you become eligible for various benefits, such as Social Security, Medicare, penalty free 401k and other retirement account access, pensions, annuities, etc. You’ll want to ensure you’re not a burden on your children by being financially independent and setup with well diversified assets that can produce enough income to support the retirement lifestyle of travel, hobbies, and spoiling grandchildren. Your elders have advice in how to navigate retirement benefits, sequence of returns, and reduce risk of losing net worth at a time that would be difficult to make up. There’s still something to learn from your elderly parents regarding living off investments.
