No One Wants Cash Flow
Problems In Retirement

Let’s have Optics

Where will your retirement income come from?

Funding Retirement


Your savings may need to be a main source.

Asset composition is for illustrative purposes only.


Most people have more questions than answers when it comes to planning for retirement?

  • How much will I need?
  • How much do I have?
  • How much do I need to save to cover the shortfall?
  • Where should I put my money?
  • How will I be affected by taxes?

Social Security

Social Security was never intended to be the only source of income for retirees. Today Social Security is generally providing a smaller percentage of the income needed in retirement, and sometimes without the benefit of cost of living increases. Furthermore, pension plans are no longer as prevalent as they used to be, leaving most people without those guaranteed funds.

Rolling your 401K or transferring your IRA can be a straightforward process,  If executed correctly, there should be no tax consequences, no fees, no hassles.

Please note that before rolling over the proceeds of your retirement plan to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or annuity, consider whether you would benefit from other possible options such as leaving the funds in your existing plan or transferring them into a new employer’s plan. You should consider the specific terms and rules that relate to each option including: the available investment options, applicable fees and expenses, the services offered, the withdrawal options, the potential flexibility around taking IRS required minimum distributions from the option, tax consequences of withdrawals and of removing shares of employer stock from your plan, possible protection from creditors and legal judgments and your unique situation. Kesten Financial Group does not provide tax or legal advice. Consult your own tax and or legal advisors regarding your particular situation.
