The Guided Retirement Show

Sep 14, 2021

Here at the Guided Retirement Show, we receive questions from YouTube viewers and podcast listeners from all over the world. We have a variety of specific questions, and we’re excited to answer as many of them as we can.

Here to help me do this is Chris Rett, Certified Financial Planner here at Barber Financial Group. In this episode, we discuss required minimum distributions (and if there’s a chance they might be going away), how to allocate funds as you prepare for retirement, why the markets are doing what they’re doing, and much, much more.

In this podcast interview, you’ll learn:

  • Why required minimum distributions aren’t going anywhere.
  • How to determine what retirement vehicle is right for you, especially when you have the option of an employer match.
  • Reasons to consider not using life insurance as an investment vehicle.
  • How to stay optimistic while planning for the worst case scenario.
  • When it’s time to reallocate a portfolio.
  • How to determine when the right time to start taking Social Security.
  • Ways to hedge against inflation in retirement.
