Get Your Income Boost
Who doesn't want more income in retirement - to meet essentials, to pay for travel, to give to kids, and more. We'd all like an Income Boost.

Now, the new Income Allocation method can deliver more income while reducing investment risk.

Why does asset allocation planning fail to produce enough retirement income?
The asset allocation method involves drawing down savings over time from a portfolio of stocks, bonds and cash.

What is the least understood and potentially most dangerous retirement risk of all?
Persistency is about carrying out the retirement plan selected. That discipline is virtually impossible when the retirees faces a stark choice: withdrawal savings after a major market correction or make painful/unrealistic cuts in personal spending. And failure to stay the course, based on various studies, results in a reduction of 1% to 4% in returns the individual investor earned vs. what the overall market did.

What is the vehicle, and what is the remaining risk?
