The Five Most Common Retirement Assumptions That Could Cost You…

Everyday retirees are making assumptions that are or could be costing them thousands of dollars in unnecessary fees and market losses.

In fact, too many retirees assume entirely too much when it comes to their retirement savings and accounts. If there were guaranteed ways to save on those costs, when would you want to know about it? Right now? If so, then you’re in luck because the assumptions stop today!

This week on The David Lukas Show, our host David discusses the top five assumptions that people make in retirement that could be costing them hundreds to thousands of dollars.

The top five detrimental assumptions that retirees/ future retirees make are:

  1. Assuming your broker takes your specific risk tolerance into consideration
  2. Taking Social Security at the wrong time…not taking survivor benefits into consideration.
  3. Assuming that your health will falter and you won’t live long
  4. Assuming that your holdings (401k, Roth IRA, IRA, Mutual funds…) are outperforming or at least meeting benchmark standards.
  5. Not diversifying your portfolio.
