Are you transitioning into retirement?
Are you already in retirement and worried about how stock market crashes like the one in 2008 could affect how long your money will last?
Have you saved enough? What if you could protect your retirement income so that stock market moves aren't going to affect it, be able to stop yourself from running out of money in old age, take care of Long Term Care costs not covered by Medicare and leave an inheritance to your heirs?

42% of Women Fear They'll Run Out of Money by Age 80.
Running out of money in retirement is a major concern among men and women alike. But because females tend to outlive their male counterparts, their chances of meeting this unwanted fate are even greater. In fact, 42% of women think they're at risk of depleting their nest eggs by the time they turn 80, according to a new study by Merrill Lynch and Age Wave.

How To Shrink Your RMDs in 2021 and Beyond
People who don’t need income from their IRA, SEP and/or 401(k) are benefiting from 2020's waiver of required minimum distributions (RMDs). They’re reducing income taxes and preserving their plan assets. Qualified Longevity Contracts (QLACs) are a special type of annuity that let you cut RMDs from your IRAs, reduce the taxes you pay and guarantee more lifetime income in old age.
But RMDs have returned in 2021. Since retirees will be a year older than when they last took their RMDs, they’ll have to take out a slightly higher percentage from their retirement plans.
There’s one little-known way to reduce “RMD shock” in 2021 and beyond. That’s by placing some of your funds in a qualified longevity annuity contract. A QLAC is a type of deferred income annuity designed to meet IRS requirements. The money in a QLAC is excluded from assets on which future RMDs are calculated. You pay a single premium and then choose when to start receiving a stream of lifetime income by age 85 at the latest.
Putting off RMDs lets you keep more of your retirement plan intact and tax-deferred. A QLAC saves up to one-fourth of the IRA for the future production of guaranteed income. An IRA owner can place up to 25% of his or her IRA balance — up to $135,000, whichever is less — in a QLAC. What could that do for you? At age 75, $135,000 in a QLAC avoids $5,895 of taxable RMDs you’d otherwise have to receive. At 84, you’d avoid $8,710 of RMDs.
Postponing up to 25% of your RMDs is a great way to set aside a portion of your assets today, reduce RMDs beginning at age 72 and postpone receiving income from these funds. That way, you can get more income when you may really need it in your 80s and 90s. While this additional income in later years is fully taxable, other incomes might be reducing or dropping off at that time. Deductible medical or long-term care expenses then might offset the increased taxable income.
Tax Deferred Strategies
Our new eBook helps retirees understand the ramifications of changes to the tax code due to the CARES Act and other COVID-19 legislation.
Deferring the taxes on an account can make a tremendous difference in the rate at which it accumulates. The money that would otherwise have been siphoned off by taxation each year remains in the account, increasing the potential return. There are a number of strategies you can use to manage income taxes. You need a knowledgeable financial professional in place. And that’s where Jennifer Lang Financial Services, comes in. We specialize in helping people just like you, make the most of every investment dollar. If you think it may be time to take a closer look at ways to manage your tax liability, schedule a review today.

Ten Year Warning!
How Retiring In a Bear Market Affects How Long Your Retirement Savings Will Last
The 2008 financial crisis caught retiring Americans off guard. This catastrophic financial event wiped out big chunks of America’s retirement savings and affected the economy long after the stock market recovered.

5 Smart Investing Principles
There’s more to diversification than simply spreading your money around to different investments. In principle, you want to select investments that have a low correlation with each other. That is, investments that don’t tend to behave the same in a market environment
We created this workshop to give you a simple overview of investing and how diversification may fit in your retirement strategy.
Protecting Those Who Matter Most
It's easy to view life insurance as an obligation rather than an opportunity—and an obligation that can be put off at that. But life insurance offers many benefits.
We all know life insurance can provide funds to pay your last expenses—including estate taxes and other costs. Life insurance potentially may be able to replace your income and help to maintain your family’s standard of living after you die. Learn how in this presentation.
Long-Term Care Protection Strategies
Long-Term Care Matters
Long-term care can be an expensive drain on family resources. And people might be surprised by the number of Americans who may need long-term care if current trends remain in place.
It makes sound financial sense to develop a strategy to protect yourself—and your family—should the need for long-term care arise.
