Bringing withdrawal rates back to Earth
Having newly transitioned to retirement, Hannah and Roy were excited to get started on big ticket items they had been putting off: home renovations as well as a long-awaited cruise, paid with money from their 401(k) accounts. In that first year of retirement, they ended up spending much more than they’d budgeted, including charitable donations they hadn’t planned for. We helped them get a handle on things by creating a spending policy statement. We also helped them maximize their philanthropy, using a donor advised fund to increase their charitable impact.
