For clients who’ve been retired for a few years, they understand that financial planning is essential for continued peace of mind. Whilst you may be slowing down and spending less, you still need to know that you have enough money to last.
You may be worried about the cost of care in old age. You may also want to know that you can pass on your wealth to your loved ones, without having to pay tax unnecessarily.
This is where we can help with later life planning. Whether you need to adapt your home to meet your needs, or finance the cost of going into care, we’ll explore and advise on all of your options. This may involve releasing equity from your home via a lifetime mortgage, or another form of borrowing in retirement. Whichever is the most suitable approach, our key aim is to ensure that you have the finances you need to support you in old age.
For those who want to pass on as much wealth as possible to their loved ones, we can advise you on inheritance tax planning. There are various options such as gifting and setting up trusts, and we will advise on the most appropriate options for you.
In all cases, we will:
- Meet you in person and discuss your current situation and what you want to achieve.
- Use cash-flow and lifestyle planning to identify where you are now financially.
- Gather all of the information regarding your pensions and investments, and any outstanding mortgages or loans to get a full picture of your current financial health.
- Put together a plan which will help you to achieve your goals.
- Regularly review your plan. Circumstances change, so it’s important to review your plan and make sure that it’s still working in your current situation and future plans.
