The Confidence Corner:

6:00 – Many folks want to know whether they should continue to own life insurance in retirement. Most people own term policies, and they don’t need them once they retire. However, we’ve worked with certain clients who still value term policies in retirement. Nathan explains why your life insurance needs should be dependent on your situation.

8:50 – Some advisors push life insurance as a way to leave a legacy. In reality, life insurance isn’t a good investment, and when you purchase it as an investment, you’re making life insurance companies wealthy. You’d be much better investing that portion of your wealth in the market in order to create a legacy.

10:50 – Medical coverage is another element of retirement planning that our clients tend to forget. Medicare won’t cover all of your medical needs, so you need to consider what medical coverage you’ll need above and beyond Medicare.
