Today, financial portfolios and non-liquid assets, while obviously important, are only one of the critical elements that make up and affect the cash flow that you will absolutely need for your retirement income – cash flow that ensures that you do not outlive your money. Not anymore in the 21st Century.
In order not to outlive your money, you need to recognize and manage all of these critical elements. Do this and you will have what we call a Financial Longevity Bundle© —Lifetime Cash Flow! Just over a decade ago in 2010, the U.S. Census reported 53,364 centenarians (people 100 years or older).
