Retirement planning helps you to identify lifestyle goals and includes projections of your likelihood of achieving your financial goals, with financial independence an objective. For situations where projections show less than the desired results, a recommendation may include showing the impact on projections by making changes in certain variables (i.e., working longer, saving more, spending less, taking more risk with investments).
If you are nearing retirement or already retired, advice is typically given on appropriate distribution strategies to minimize the likelihood of running out of money or having to adversely alter spending during retirement years.
