Retirement Planning

Retirement is the goal you’ve been waiting for your whole career, but do you have a retirement strategy that works towards the retirement you’ve always dreamed about? We recognize that your plans for life in retirement are deeply personal. Don’t leave your retirement goals up to chance, seek professional financial advice and get started with our retirement planning service today! Whether you are looking to retire in San Diego or abroad, we are happy to schedule a live conversation to help you plan for your financial future.

Our retirement planning process begins with a detailed assessment of your needs, your goals, and your current situation with one of our financial planning experts.

We find that people typically move through three phases in their financial lives:

Accumulation: You are growing your wealth and are planning ahead for what you may need. For clients in this phase, we

  • Prepare retirement needs and cash flow analysis (income, expenses, retirement goals, etc.)
  • Recommend savings and investment management strategies, including asset allocation options according to your risk tolerance 
  • Review and advise on employee benefits and retirement plan options
  • Discuss risk management needs including disability, life, and liability insurance

Distribution: You’ve recently retired and want to make sure that you are using your hard-earned savings wisely throughout your retirement. For clients in this phase, we

  • Advise on pension distribution election options
  • Calculate and disburse Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs)
  • Review retirement income and financial goals 
  • Incorporate tax planning to facilitate efficient distributions from investment accounts
  • Advise on Social Security and Medicare Planning

Transfer and Legacy: You feel confident that you have enough wealth to take care of your lifetime needs. Now, you are looking ahead to how best to take care of your loved ones and charities. A D&Y financial advisor will work with you as you decide where your money should go, whether that be to an individual beneficiary or an organization. For clients in this phase, we

  • Evaluate strategies for tax-efficient transfer of wealth to the next generation
  • Coordinate with your estate planning attorney and execute changes to account structure
  • Assist with estate administration
  • Review options for charitable giving
