Radio: Projecting Your Own Longevity

with No Comments

One of the most critical aspects of financial planning is longevity: how long we are going to plan on living. If you use an earlier death than actual, the clients are at risk of running out of money. If you use a later death than actual, the clients might be asked to practice unnecessary thriftiness.

On Tuesday, January 10, 2023, David John Marotta appeared on Radio 1070 WINA’s Schilling Show with Rob Schilling to talk about how long we should plan on living in retirement projections.

Here is an outline of the discussion:
