The Retirement Corporation of America

Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: How do I know if I have enough money to retire?



A: Every family has different goals and dreams for their retirement years. There is no universal answer for this question. Many different factors have to be taken into account.

What will be the rate of inflation and how will that affect the cost of living?

How should the portfolio be allocated in order to meet income needs?

How will market volatility affect the portfolio's ability to provide the necessary cash flow?

The professionals at RCA are equipped to help each family determine whether or not they are ready for retirement.

RCA's staff includes experienced Certified Financial Planners (CFP) as well as Certified Public Accountants (CPA). These individuals have access to some of the most powerful planning software available. This combination of experience and resources will enable us to help each family answer their retirement questions.

The planning process begins with an initial information gathering meeting. Once we gain a thorough understanding of your financial picture, we are able to begin the planning process.

The follow-up meetings will focus on two primary topics: cash flow and taxes.

During the course of retirement each family's financial plan is regularly updated and reviewed.
