Foreword to the Avidian Wealth Retirement Survival Guide by Ed Slott, CPA:

Retirement is a major life transition filled with new questions that need to be answered – starting with whether you are even ready to retire, both emotionally and financially.

In this easy-to-follow Retirement Survival Guide, financial and tax advisor Scott Bishop takes you through the factors you need to consider before each choice you make.

He begins with a mountain climbing analogy which shows you that the strategies you’ve used in saving for retirement (getting to the top of the mountain) are different than the ones you’ll need going forward – in retirement.

This valuable guide highlights each of those critical issues that you have probably been wondering and even worrying about and gives you the information you need to create solutions that are best for your own situation. There are some good ideas here that you’ve probably never thought of.

Some of the key issues besides getting ready for retirement are how much income will you need, will you keep working, when to take Social Security for optimum benefit, health care options, financial protection and how to invest for a safe and secure retirement.

In addition and the most important to me – and you – is the tax planning. Taxes are the single biggest factor that will affect your retirement security. Scott has created the Trademarked R.I.T.E. solution (Retirement Income Taxed Efficiently®) to help you maximize your retirement income while minimizing your tax bill.

And here’s an additional benefit to you as a reader of this Guide…

As a member of Ed Slott’s Elite IRA Advisor GroupScott Bishop has unique and extensive knowledge in the retirement tax planning area and shares those insights with you.

In retirement, income is the name of the game, especially guaranteed income for life and Scott’s specialized training gives you access to tax strategies that will increase your net annual retirement income.

So get started reading, learning and feeling more confident about enjoying a successful and worry-free retirement. You’ll end up with more and it will last longer!

That’s the plan.
