30. Retirement Income Planning – Part Three of Six Points of Financial Planning with John Harms CFP, RICP®


As you enter retirement, you want to be sure your wealth doesn’t outlive you. 

It’s important to ensure you have enough money to continue to live comfortably and that you have finances for any extra hurdles that might come along the way.

In this episode, David Pulcini talks to colleague John P. Harms, CFP®, RICP®, partner and investment advisor representative at Six Point Financial Partners about the third point in the series of Six Points Of Financial Planning, retirement income planning. 

David and John discuss: 

  • Where to start when planning for retirement
  • How the timing of your retirement planning will affect your income later 
  • Different aspects that can make your retirement different from anyone else's
  • How long the process of retirement planning can take with an advisor (spoiler, it’s less than you think…) 
  • How much to allocate towards your retirement, and how to find the amount right for you
  • What comes next, once you have your plan in place
  • And more
