Would you like to maintain your pre-retirement spending levels and standard of living after you’ve retired? Some, however, intend to spend more heavily in their early retirement years, believing they will spend less as they age. These spending considerations are an important part of your retirement planning, and there is often a disparity between spending intentions and spending reality. Today, John Walker, Regional Vice President, Mercer Advisors, discusses retirement spending patterns and how they relate to good planning. He also discusses a recent Boston College Center for Retirement Research study that looks at how retirees intend to spend vs. how they actually spend what they’ve saved.
