In your encore years, review and understand the probable outcome of your wealth plan and consider consolidating accounts to simplify your financial life.


Fund your lifestyleFund your lifestyle

In the early stages, avoid or eliminate unproductive debt. Fund but defer health savings account spending until retirement.

In your later years, plan for your distributions and manage your spending to cover your needs.
