Retirement Considerations

by Jeremiah Worby

One of the biggest financial questions on everyone’s mind is whether or not they will have enough money to retire. Not only do savings and investments need to be taken into the equation, income and expenses also need in-depth analysis.


Expenses


Will my daily coffees increase in price? Although I’m poking fun, inflation is a serious concern. Everyone’s expenses will clearly vary from one person to another, but some other considerations need to be taken into account, such as:


  • Will I be able to find work if needed?

    • If income falls short, will a new source of income be required?

  • Am I financially dependent on someone else?

    • Or is someone else financially dependent on me?

  • Do I plan on living in the same city upon retirement?

    • Costs of living can vary greatly from one city to the next

  • Have I taken into account inflation?

    • Will my entertainment and hobby expenses increase during my retirement years?

  • What if interest rates rise?

    • Will I be able to afford my home if rates rise?

  • Do I plan on living in the same home upon retirement?

    • Will I downsize?  

    • Is condo living a consideration due to limited mobility (that could mean increased expenses due to HOA fees)?

  • Do I have or need insurance?

    • What if something unexpected happens during retirement?

  • Do I have a will, power of attorney, health care directive in place?

    • Making sure all angles are considered and taken care of in your retirement years can help you live without unneeded stress

Expert Financial Advice Regarding Retirement.



Retirement Considerations


One of the biggest financial questions on everyone’s mind is whether or not they will have enough money to retire?  Not only do savings and investments need to be taken into the equation, income and expenses also need in-depth analysis.

 

Income*

 
Old Age Security (OAS)


The OAS pension is a monthly pension payment payable to eligible individuals.  OAS pension benefits are considered taxable income. To be eligible for full payment, you must:

• be 65 or older

• be a Canadian citizen or legal resident of Canada at the time of application approval

OR

• if you no longer live in Canada (a non-resident), you were a Canadian citizen or legal resident of Canada on the day preceding the day of departure from Canada

• have lived in Canada for a minimum of 10 years (or 20 years for non-residents) after reaching age 18

Individuals who have lived in Canada for 40 years after the age of 18 are eligible for 100% of the OAS pension benefit.

 

 

Canada Pension Plan (CPP)


CPP program benefits, except for the death benefit, are indexed annually for increases in the cost of living.  In order to receive CPP program benefits, eligible individuals must apply.  Benefits are not automatically paid once someone reaches the age of eligibility.  Applications are accepted via two methods; online through the My Service Canada Account, or via paper forms mailed to the applicable Provincial CPP office.

You can start receiving CPP as early as age 60 (at a reduced rate) and as late as age 70 (at an increased rate).  The maximum CPP payment in 2022 is $1,253.59 a month.

 

Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)

The tax-free savings account (TFSA) provides a way to earn investment income tax-free.  Whereas other registered accounts allow the deferral of tax on income earned within the plan; the TFSA is unique in that any investment income earned within the plan is tax-free when it is withdrawn.  In order to open a TFSA account, you must have reached the age of majority, defined as age 18 or 19, for the province or territory in which you live.  The types of investments permitted in a TFSA include cash, mutual funds, securities listed on a designated stock exchange, guaranteed investment certificates (GICs), bonds, and certain shares of small business corporations.

The annual TFSA dollar limit was established at $5,000 in 2009, the year that TFSAs were introduced as a registered account.  Any unused amounts are carried forward to future years.  The $6,000 contribution room for 2022 means the lifetime contribution limit is now $81,500.

 

Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)


A registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) is a type of registered savings plan set up underthe Income Tax Act and registered with the Canada Revenue Agency.  An RRSP is not an investment; you cannot buy an RRSP. Instead, an RRSP is a registered investment vehicle within which investors can deposit various types of investments.  In order to contribute to anRRSP, an individual must have earned income.

The growth of money invested inside an RRSP is not subject to tax until it is withdrawn.  In other words, the tax payable on investment growth is deferred until the future.  Since income earned inside an RRSP is tax-sheltered, RRSP investments grow much faster than non-registered investments held outside an RRSP.

Regina Financial Advisors John Barabe & Madison Schenher Share A Boom Bust Report

John Barabe and Madison Schenher understand that everyone's financial situation is unique and that managing your wealth can be complex and time-consuming. They have an unwavering commitment to quality and service which has enabled John to build and retain a successful practice in Regina. The team of Regina financial advisors and support staff believe that planning with honesty and integrity are cornerstones to improving their clients' quality of life. They apply their knowledge to help clients make the right choices when considering all the product and service options that exist in today's marketplace. In their latest Regina financial advisor expert article, they share information on investment strategies and how to keep up with the pace of inflation.

It Begins!

 

In December, Michael Oliver wrote that 2022 will be one for the record books. January 9th title was “seat belts.” January 23rd, “it begins.” 

 

He had been alluding to this break in the Nasdaq (NDX 100 Index). Well, we got it. 


   

 #1.


Keep in mind how important it is for this market to be breaking down. This is the infallible U.S. stock market that only goes up. The run-up has been fueled by printed money to such an extent that it is the longest and most overpriced ever (by many measures). 

 

What is the reaction to this event? The U.S. central bank (the Fed) has been clear with its intention to raise interest rates and stop printing in short order (ha). IF THEY DO: then the decline of the stock market is likely to continue until markets finally buckle. What is more likely is the Fed will cave soon and do what they can to “rescue” the stock market. This means even more printing and doing what they can to keep interest rates low. 

 

This industry still believes that bonds will save you from your stock losses (balanced approach). As you all know, printing is what causes inflation. Inflation is getting ugly, and if the reaction is to print more and more, inflation is going to get worse. Their “rescue” is causing the problem. The higher inflation goes, the more investors in GIC’s, term deposits, and bonds will need to be compensated. The most extreme low-interest rates in human history caused the “everything bubble” (stock, bond, and real estate) that we are in. Higher interest rates, forced by inflation, will pop that bubble. 

 

We have been making clients aware of this and carefully constructed portfolios with all the above in mind. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.

 

Thank you for reading this article. We would like to offer you a value-added service for your time. We will make ourselves available to act as a sounding board. Please understand, you do not need to become a client to take advantage of this service. The reason we do this is that we became financial advisors to help people make informed choices with their financial future. It’s very gratifying. One of two things typically occurs when going through this process; either we validate for you that your current approach is fundamentally solid, or we reveal a few minor flaws that you might want to consider adjusting.  As you know, minor adjustments can often lead to major improvements down the road. Either way, we will make ourselves available and ensure that this is a great investment of your time.


We are sending this out as material information to keep everyone informed. This is not a solicitation for any investment.

Trusted Regina Financial Management Consultant John Barabe Discusses Inflation and Investments

John Barabe is a Trusted Regina Financial Management Consultant and he has an unwavering commitment to quality and service which has enabled him to build and retain a successful practice in Regina. He and his team of Regina financial professionals and support staff believe that planning with honesty and integrity are cornerstones to improving their clients' quality of life. He applies his knowledge to help clients make the right choices when considering all the product and service options that exist in today's marketplace. In his latest Trusted Regina financial expert article, he shares information on investment strategies and how to keep up with the pace of inflation. 

Do your Investments Keep Up with The Pace Of Inflation?


If you need $1000 per month for expenses and you have $1,000,000 in deposit accounts (for example a guaranteed investment certificate, term deposit, or savings account) earning 1.2% you are set, right? Well, if inflation is 2% the expenses will increase from $12,000 to $14,628 in 10 years and to $17,831 in 20 years. Your investment falls short of the income you need so you end up spending your original capital to make up the shortfall. 


What you need is a return that will allow you to draw an income that keeps up with the cost of living.  


Let’s simplify further with an example of the poor current deposit account returns:


In 1991 $150,000 invested in one year GIC’s earned enough to purchase a new Ford.

In 2011 $150,000 invested in 1 year GIC’s earned enough to purchase the same 1991 Ford.



Despite record low interest rates, you still need an income from your investments. If your investment return is coming from a guaranteed deposit account currently, you may not even be keeping up with inflation.  

What if there were a way to get a better return, a reasonable return, and still remain low risk? 

Unfortunately many people that need income for retirement or even just an investment return that is reasonable are not getting this direction.  I will provide you with access to unique methods to reduce risk, while allowing you the returns you deserve with the objective of maximizing your returns. I want to assure you there are investment strategies that can outpace inflation and provide you with reasonable retirement income. 


I thank you for reading this article and would like to offer you a value-added service for your time. I will make myself available to act as a sounding board. Please understand, you do not need to become a client to take advantage of this service. The reason I do this is because I became a financial advisor to help people make informed choices with their financial future. It’s very gratifying.

Either way, I will make myself available and ensure that this is a great investment of your time.

Trusted Regina Financial Management Consultant John Barabe Discusses Protecting Your Principal

John Barabe is a Trusted Regina Financial Management Consultant and he has an unwavering commitment to quality and service which has enabled him to build and retain a successful practice in Regina. He and his team of Regina financial professionals and support staff believe that planning with honesty and integrity are cornerstones to improving their clients' quality of life. He applies his knowledge to help clients make the right choices when considering all the product and service options that exist in today's marketplace. In his latest Trusted Regina financial expert article, he shares information on protecting your principal when investing. 

Protecting Your Principal 

There are many managed money (mutual fund-like) investment options. In Canada alone, there are over 20,000, and there are a further 70 plus financial institutions offering GIC’s and term deposits. A program I subscribe to lists over 100,000 investment alternatives and this is by no means comprehensive. That’s a lot to sort through! 

 

Do You Invest? 


If you invest your money into stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or a managed investment that is made up of any of these, the risk to your capital can be greater than you are willing to accept. With so many choices out there it can feel like a gamble with your life savings to pick one. If you invest in GIC’s you have a guaranteed yield, but how are you going to generate a fair return? GIC rates are among the lowest they have ever been in Canada, so this is not a good thing when you are about to earn your living from the interest. 


$500,000 invested in a 2% GIC earns $833 a month. This is very modest living from your life’s savings leaving you no alternative but to spend less or use up your invested capital if you need more.


So What Is The Solution?  


Just because interest rates are very low in Canada, does not mean they are just as low everywhere in the world. I can provide you the right direction and expertise so you can be safely rewarded by gaining access to these higher interest rates.


What About Using The Stock Market?  


In order to get a better rate of return than the near-zero returns that a guaranteed investment provides, many people turn to the stock market. Although in many years you may do well the obvious downfall here is that without warning the stock market can drop significantly taking your life savings with it.  


Suppose I told you there is a way to avoid these major declines but still have the upside the stock market provides?  



Think of how house insurance protects you from your house burning to the ground. Insurance provides a cheque that offsets your losses. It makes you whole once again (minus your deductible). We have no idea when our house could burn to the ground, just as we do not know when the stock market will experience its next major decline. I can protect your life savings in a manner very similar to how house insurance protects your house, eliminating the need to know when the next crash will happen.



Let’s call your investment protection “price drop insurance”.  With this protection in place, you can participate in the good years without having to expose yourself to the bad. You can sleep at night knowing you have protection and no longer need a crystal ball.


If you had any portion of your investments in stocks, you know how badly you did with the stock market crash in 2008. We all know that the stock market will experience another major decline again. My clients did better because of this 2008 stock market crash than they would have without it because there is above average opportunity, but only in the right direction. The good news for them is that the stock market will go down again, allowing the opportunity for above-average returns again.  


How will you fare with the next stock market correction?  


I would be glad to share with you more details of how my clients profit from market declines.  

On that note, we are past due for the next major market decline. I also have evidence that the next stock market decline will be significant. I would like to offer you a value-added service for taking the time to read this article.I will make myself available to act as a sounding board. Please understand, you do not need to become a client to take advantage of this service. The reason I do this is that I became a financial advisor to help people make informed decisions about their financial future. It’s very fulfilling.  

One of two things typically occurs when going through this process; either I validate for you that your current approach is fundamentally solid, or I reveal a few minor flaws that you might want to consider adjusting.  


As you know, minor adjustments can often lead to major improvements down the road. Either way, I will make myself available and ensure that this is a great investment of your time.


Sincerely,

John Barabe, Madison Schenher and team.
