Why You Should Care What Rick Law Has To Say About Protecting You, Your Lifestyle, And Your Retirement Assets
By Rick Law, Estate Planning Attorney and Senior Advocate in the Western suburbs of Chicago During any calendar year, I and my team at Law Elder Law in Aurora, IL work with at least 500 singles and couples, ranging from healthy, vigorous, Vietnam-War-era baby boomers and younger, to the fragile remaining elders of the Depression era and World War II generation. We’ve discovered that most people are looking for four things for their retirement years:
- Safety, because it’s too hard (if not impossible) to get back what you lost.
- A reasonable rate of return on your money. Most people do not expect to be stock market wizards. They want a safe and consistent way to be able to support their lifestyle.
- Simplicity, because nobody wants to be a fool. People want to make legal and financial decisions they can understand.
- Income for life. Nobody wants to run out of money before they die. If you are out of money, then you are out of options.
