Time is precious

As you approach retirement you may finally have the time to do what you’ve been dreaming of. If you knew exactly how much time you have, you would be able to plan your entire life and retirement savings perfectly.

A retirement income plan is powerful because time is so unpredictable. By focusing on your goals, a retirement income plan helps you make the most of the time and money that you have. 

“The first decade of retirement is the most crucial one…”

—Moshe Milevsky

Finance Professor, Schulich School of Business

A well-planned retirement is a balance between enjoying the early years when you are healthy and able to spend more money while leaving enough assets to ensure you are able to maintain your standard of living for life while leaving a legacy for others should you wish to.

Instead of one source of income from either an employer or your business, your income during retirement will come from many different sources: government programs, workplace and government pensions, and any personal savings you have. 

Once you decide to start these incomes—with few exceptions—you cannot turn them off or make different choices. Deciding when and how much to take is critical and needs a specialized strategy.
