MILWAUKEE, Sept. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether you're still planning for retirement or knocking on its door, there's one certainty: unlike previous generations, you are responsible for creating your own paychecks in retirement. In that vein, Northwestern Mutual is hosting "Receive a Lifelong Paycheck: Guaranteed Income in Retirement," a webcast designed to help navigate the new reality of funding retirement with the responsibility for creating a personal paycheck.
As part of the webcast, Northwestern Mutual's Don Armstrong, CLU®, ChFC®, CFP®, MSFS, CASL, AEP, and Michael Soyka, CLU®, CFP®, Regional Director - Planning & Sales, will discuss how a retirement income strategy that includes a steady stream of guaranteed income can help individuals achieve their retirement goals. It is taking place at 12 PM CT on Tuesday, September 17, and is open to the public and free of change. Individuals may register at: http://u.nm.com/Webcast4
"Saving for retirement is only half the challenge," said Armstrong. "Just as you needed a strategy to accumulate the funds for retirement, you need a strategy to make your money last through retirement."
"You need to determine all the possible sources of income you can draw from," added Soyka. "You have your pre-retirement savings, such as your 401(k), but equally important are guaranteed income streams, such as social security and annuities,* which can help sustain the retirement lifestyle you envisioned."
Following the event, the recorded webcast and other resources will be available on: www.northwesternmutual.com/webcasts. The webcast is the fourth in Northwestern Mutual's "Planning for Success" series. Past webcasts --focusing on retirement myths, estate planning, and financial security in uncertain times – are available on-demand at northwesternmutual.com/webcasts.
