Well yeah gallon and the Federal Reserve last week and decided to leave interest rates near zero while some believe a rate increase may come in September since Stovall chief equity strategist at S&P capital IQ he says there is a silver lining actually to the story. Would just right now else having aids dividend yield on the S&P 500 that is very close to the yield on the ten year note. That actually is still relatively positive. Historically whenever that has happened the market has gone up an average of 13%. In the coming twelve month period. Of course that's not a guarantee that that'll happen this time around. Awarded implies is that interest rates are so low that it's still make stops very attractive relative to bonds. George Ryan how do you guys help your clients is this kind of market noises is really kind of bothering them keeping them off at night.

Reading about which went up this souls talk about it is that is actually true or if I read about that as well yet to as you said there's no guarantee. In the future so we can were cells to death with these type of things were when we talk about the Fed increasing each record points how many times have we heard that. How are you conscious have been delayed yet. Right a lot anyway hearing now that every time I talk credit an array is it mean everyone's kind of on the edge of their seats but it's sometimes they'll think folks really know how this could affect them you know at home and said the for a while their house well the it's heads could point. Or talk about why should it affect him. That's a choice we make future heavily invest in the stock or if it's gonna while bubble at some point why you play that game market timing is awful. More people are awful lot of professionals are awful at market timing trying to think we have inside information that other people don't have we're competing against Wall Street. Let's put that way and for Wall Street to make money they have to self right and if they hadn't and thereafter giving information out to. Make money for them not for you. And we have to understand how the rules are played. This information comes out daily there's a huge amount of noise out there creates a lot of volatility. Right now we are in low volatility we're blessed for a little bit period of time but once the starts kicking and we're hearing a lot of people talk about September October. And then.

And we're we were finalizing up along parts of the plan last week in these that he Nora and I like this. I feel like I can now sit on the sideline and watch everything else that's going on I'm no longer in the game and I don't wanna be in the game I can just sit back and watch it as. The man who sits on the dock and reads books. So that is again the choices he's made to say listen.

You know that's what the unknowns we face when planning for retirement is what taxes are going to look like in the future. Patrick Kelley author of quite a few best selling a retirement books including tax free retirement says our national dad believes very few. Options there's two ways we can fix what can you noticed we can spend the last or we can tax more bringing more income. Well not only are we not spent enough for spending more than we've ever spend. So if that's not working the only way to do it is raise taxes so. Is it better to pay tax to day on 101000 dollars or 40%. Or the way and pay tax on a 100000 dollars at 506070%. George Ryan and talked folks your clients every day at north star financial and retirement planning about being tax Smart and their retirement. First let's address this whole security side of the I had those folks came in yesterday and a wonderful couple nurse. The general businessman came in and she goes George Social Security is not gonna be they're forming I'm planning to retire with Social Security. That's a while. I come from. We talk a bit further who and I agree with some of her concerns for. I don't agree with her think it's a screen won't be there and we had a good conversation and then came back to this. Yes is underfunded. And the there are challenges Social Security. Yet the changes will not come to Social Security. Purse say it will come around to taxes. Having to increase to fund social security and so if you agree with that zealous must like a missile security unless I'm gonna happen. In other politicians again the second that would just be Armageddon than that from the White House so we're looking at is. That little nuances that are going to increase taxes down the road so you have to do proper planning for that get some money. Off the radar of the IRS. We believe in that. Planning is okay did you know you can do it it's a choice we sit down folks you have paid enough into the system. He should get as much back as possible you don't go to the IRS for tax advice to you now. Ellie golf and yeah you can call them back. And if you talk to each other CPA or tax you have to ask a question or tax planner. Or tax prepare. And tax preparer will go ahead and say here ego and the doctor give you any real insight to had to save money. It's gonna get taxed for pick a player is somebody we worked together with sit down with. So you folks can tell what you make it's what you keep we all know that. And if you have a half million dollar IRA he said I've got a half million dollar IRA I say no you know. You do not have happened directly by government owns a third. I says are just saying we're looking at the accounts for sing a dollar amount but we forget about Uncle Sam taking his current with all alone but the numbers are due to statements look at all the money I have. The anyway from that that's not true. It's a change your mindset and people have their 401 k's out there in the company's matching their contributing and if it's all going into the tax qualified portion of the 401K. You can't see what your cost basis keep you can't look up. At least not very easily how much you have actually put into your growth. So not only do you not know how much you put in there how much your companies put in there it's very difficult to find those numbers. How much of that is yours because you might be getting a little bit of a tax break right now I'm not paying taxes on it for right now where when her lowest tax breaks we've ever had. We ask this is your tax advisor currently talking about tax reduction strategies and usually comes to this say no we don't just look at all the money we're making. You have to do that and just if you think taxes are going acquire not having the style. Why your visor and I talked about it. What are you currently doing gossip that the more time you have to retire before you retire more time you have to make these changes. Contributions to Roth came up.

Be nice if we had a crystal halted though that it but this masters the chief investment officer at eighty Bernstein recently made this prediction on Bloomberg surveillance. Yes returns will be much more modest and I think I think that this is a good guess by 67% as is our forecast. And there's going to be a lot more volatility. And that's not a bold forecast and cousins on volatility for the last years has been unusually low and no not a lot because of Central Bank action especially the Fed. Essentially suppressing risk when they're quantitative easing programs now and there's nothing back. We're see volatility returned to normal which is a lot higher than most people are used to. George Ryan let's talk about you know ways that we can approach this type of return with Al Oliver volatility because when it comes our overall retirement income plan we have to think about any money we've got based in the market along with taxes and an even Social Security. Volatility is a misunderstood word and what we're looking at is basically emotions. Fearing Greek kicking and people are thinking it's gonna create up or down. A lot of speculation a lot of emotion you're getting involved that's that this gentleman is saying that creates Havoc on the retirement plan. It and give you an idea that 2% drop down continue to do you know the stock market. 20082009. For seventeen months months dropped 55%. While 55% it took a takes over a 100% return just to get your money back up that. We're very fortunate with the market coming back the way it did not the timeline when you retire as you get older. This recovery time is not as acceptable as a was when you were in your thirties. So addressing this volatility you have a choice folks who is at times maybe dial back some of the risk put into a safe account where you still have a correlation to the gains. People with downside protection. We're seeing more and more of that benefactor Ryan just got a email from her for clients and George. We're ready to reposition some of our assets from a risk world to. Not rest just give us a reasonable return were good to go we're gonna go play now. We love those conversations owner and. Who we sure do any of volatility is that it's so funny as everybody wants to base how well they're doing up the S&P 500. Yet 55%. In just over a year nobody wants that Cold War all willing to say why didn't do as well as the S&P this year. And really sitting down and George can can kind of help educate you where is your your wrist school where were you most comfortable. And if your most comfortable without having that 55% risk then. A lot of people did very well last year they might not a done that people what this included 13% of Turkey about 13% last year we had a lot of people come Encino. I think quite get the full 13%. All. We had folks that were in safe money alternatives we had folks that weren't investments would downside protection and if you're a downside protection might not get that 13% gain last year but you're also not gonna get that 55% down over here. There's a saying stole forty years ago to one sleep better three better. And yet a look at that wins the serious kind of questioned say what's more important here and I'm going to need more money. If you do need more money they have take more risk for so you're playing catch up. It timeline is different for most people are entry return getting close it's on the horizon here with you more concerned about I wanna be able sleep better retirements which means now worry about money. Now we're about living long a nice long life running out though. And just kind of kicking back and we put those plans together both went to actually goes right back down to another saying they utilities charge and that's. You don't build a roof on a training. No doughnuts on the sunny start making the changes don't let that house. Become because the birth these particular what happens you trying to save you go and actually your choice any money on the roof and you wait too long it destroys the home. And if you wanna save a little bit of money and the cost you a lot. So just be careful. That we really sit down people and say what what's important to you let's take a look do you think you have enough money is the first question is safety we ask that they don't know so it's him. The target yet it says think that that is the big question is folks you know we've seen the commercials what's our number you know as figuring out that number. Everyone does really wanna know the answer format as. Says that was great we actually used to use the ING commercial for what you number who used to show it to people or people see what what Wall Street says your numbers should be unfortunately when boy have bought out I NG that commercial on that website is good. There's fun there's a baker walked around his number and it was over three million dollars that's a lot of pastries folks. It's a lot and I 4% roles now 3% or less and actually two point eight what they mean by that he can safely withdraw 4% per year. Without fear of Al living your money I think every million dollars you draw down 42 currently that million dollars safely be withdrawn twenty. 8000 that's not a lot. Right now that's up. It's got a lot. So there's other methods other ways to go ahead and get you like higher return of your money. Safely. Well and Social Security is part of that you know retirement income plan you guys weren't conned because you know we've got a factor and inflation and endure a little increase in what she did every year because of that with Social Security isn't there yes yes that's a. Oh there's there's cost of living increases. A lot of people a lot of people have heard that there's an 8% increase creature you to life. What most people don't realize that there's also cost of living increases have fallen that as well so I it if you're able to maybe not work for another year to your third or maybe even if you retire if you can still cover your bills you utilizing other funds were allowed us Social Security just build up a little bit more. Some of the calculators so we use we actually take into account if CD interest rates rest 678% or more. Just CD fix money's safe money alternatives. Then they might make a little bit more sense that. To keep investing their money that if you're looking at your overall portfolio though and hearsay quail Turner's your other alternatives out there and you're looking at the volatility was we just talked about or you're looking at earning. We have a client came in from Laredo the turning point 1% and what is endearing. Blowing all one that's not gonna do much for you at all. Point one she's coming due for renewal and she called in other areas they said I don't know what I should do and I'm pretty sure it's not renewing this. You're absolutely right places 3% surge is losing money safely each year. Safely losing money so Social Security plays a major part in any in the optimization report we do for folks it's sort a look at your situation it's not maximizing what our callers recently just said I love the fact the all use. Optimization. Because she said we're worship me meeting where their next week said my situation a little bit different. Then a lot of other people situation and for me the idea of maximizing is probably. Maximizing for me which is optimizations are just when I have people call me and say they'll come to my dinner on Social Security or come do this for got to maximize your returns that doesn't make sense for her. So in our Social Security optimization report we're gonna discuss. Not only how you can optimize for you view your life your lifestyle. But how you can utilize your other investments other funds other tools to be able to make you say you get the most Social Security. And along with that we've been talking about volatility Social Security. It's not affected by the stock market. That volatility does not does not bother so. We've got an inflation adjusted income its tax preferred income. And Georgia very mentioned you know it's going to be they're free folks there's going to be some minor modifications to it but. If you're in that group 5055 and above that's going to be going on Social Security you over the next ten years you should feel very confident that's going to be there for a. We've got a unique strategy we put together and people command they've never seen this before they met with four or five other advisors is an ever since you like this this makes much sense I get it. So when they finish up they say something like that right and I just file but looking at some of these strategies that are out there at the tools we have available for our clients. Is there is just it's just universe of files from a products and solutions that we have and so what are we don't we take the time education. Really single time we go over go to the white board and the walk through it this is how works these this is the benefits personally catches you gotta be OK with us. But we put a strategy that really addresses longevity so if you've got a grandmother who's in her nineties you're probably a 1000. And prolong life don't say it's not me tell you grandmother she would. She was Huckabee ran to BAC 9495. In their shares that's our round even driving so you've got to plan for the us well we take into account. That's the thing is you know someone really thinking about that you might be thinking how I began my grandmother does little long time plus great and wonderful but you likely going to live now along as well and making sure you have the money to be able to do that.

Made 0920. Fridge. Income dairy market or sharp ski recently compare the benefits of retirees using an immediate annuities vs simply withdrawing a certain percentage of money. From their savings each year and concluded that and then chases the annuity actually works better. It does talk about that is that something that you see it is true with her car. It's absolutely. It's kind of a controversial word. But you know annuity but people like what they do. So it's kind of a if you got to take the time and and educate folks there's a out. Marketing guru out there and does some names Fisher and he has this I hated new he's issued to. So also you see this guy all over the place he looks like he makes lots of money and and he does say you have to kind of get this believability sizable there's got to be something to it. And police sell stocks and bonds folks so the news or is competition so that's put that aside but when people start. Looking at may say why like conservative growth alike to access some of my money I like the thought of lifetime income. What's thought a reason worry returned. I'd like to safety principle I like the low cost if she's if our are any. And also need talent would you like some of your money in this bucket they are absolutely. George you just made a big point would you like some of money again when George's licensees of fiduciary which means he has to do what is in the best. Best interest of his clients and new of these there's so many people that they hear the word annuity in the cringe. They've set I was somebody who's not a fiduciary who maybe is only entrance lessons. And suddenly the annuity is the cure for all and they need to put a 100% of their money in their and that's just not right. So for a portion of your money and I. Had to jump in there George yeah. So Warsaw Huskies said. The slump some culture. Which is what we're trained give us clear money but your visor. And they say we'll just put this big basket and you will just draw from it that long some culture is really got to beef and it's there's some problems with that. Also he goes on about the overconfidence we have and are investing ability. And they're less likely to go for guaranteed income because of that this bomb making lots of money. I know until we're brokers really fit well guess what folks the party you apple and at some point and then you gonna be prepared to your not. Taken care of your income. They pocket strategy is this first to pursue you have is liquidity. You have money available for emergencies because things happen you've got to have enough at least six months set aside I like one year's worth. Then you saw for income what you need to put aside just couldn't give you a lifetime return of your money that you can't outlive all spouses and guess why. At some point if you wanna take your money back with what's left my pocket you can do that. Ten not locked into these lifetime contract but yet you'll receive a lifetime income taking the time to learn about these strategies folks is huge. It's huge and we really can't stress that enough we are too much dependent on the stock market for our quality life I've got to proms and that. You know George you've been over and I think we've had a great show today I really do so we've talked about volatility. Talk about social security and the cost of living increases for talks about tax free in other strategies out there to take some. Some money off the radar the IRS. Withdrawal percentages you mentioned earlier the new money car volunteers are all saying two point 8%. And then. We just out talking about annuities for income. Annuities are based off your age of certain ones have better withdrawal percentages than others every you know he's built all the different link it somehow fees some don't. But two point 8% and then nobody. In beauties can can absolutely glow which folks and we'll have somebody in Ryan it's Clyde came and we show them they don't need the money right now the senate side in a deferred annuity. And when they they retire they're gonna have an 11%. Return of their money per year thrust of their lives prescilla trust your playlist. And they have longevity they have parents that are in their ninety's that frees up other money. And then you know and do other thing I always enjoy. Take the time that we are tied back George mentioned the volatility buffer if you have a safe pile of money out there that's going to work for you that's earning but it's not related to the stock market. When the market does go down you don't take any other money from that you have a somewhere else to pull money from. You have an annuity that's creating a lifetime income and as a matter how old you are. And some of these plans have additional benefits for long term care Bolton and funds to stay at home. And you learn about this and I did not know these were available yes there are folks just because your advisor has not talked to about it doesn't mean they're not there. You know earlier I think we started the show with Al held. How much time as it takes current plan. So when when George is a dinner presentation he's taking what used to be a three day three hour day course that you would teach at Furman in north Greeneville and tourist community college.
