The Consequences of Overestimating Retirement Expenses
This week, Advisor Perspectives published our article, The Consequences of Overestimating Retirement Expenses.

It also discusses how these weaknesses can be addressed using the Actuarial Approach advocated in this website. We provide an example for a hypothetical couple that uses our Actuarial Budget Calculator (Retirees) workbook.
