Answers from J.P. Morgan
SELECT A TOPIC and READ ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT VARIOUS FINANCIAL GOALS
I plan to retire before my spouse - how should we coordinate Social Security benefits?
The decision about which spouse should claim spousal benefits may not always favor the lower-earning spouse. Your decision may be influenced by the timing of your retirement, your relative ages and health histories - another reason why navigating spousal benefits is so complicated. Your J.P. Morgan Private Client Advisor can help you decide the best course of action.
How should healthcare factor into my retirement plan?
With healthcare costs rising two to three times faster than the cost of inflation, you'll need to consider how they may impact your standard of living in retirement. How much you'll need may depend on when you retire, how long you live, your overall health and the cost of medical care in your area. Your J.P. Morgan Private Client Advisor can help you evaluate your assumptions and adjust your plan as necessary to consider higher potential expenses in retirement and healthcare before other expenses.
How do we plan for expenses involved with caring for an elderly parent?
Caring for an aging parent can be both emotionally and financially challenging while you're juggling other family goals.
Your J.P. Morgan Private Client Advisor can help you evaluate your current situation, suggest alternatives and develop a plan to budget for these additional expenses.
What tax savings opportunities are available to me?
The tax landscape frequently changes. In addition to traditional tax-favored accounts such as IRAs, 401(k)s and the like, other approaches — from municipal bonds and managed accounts that seek to improve after-tax returns to charitable giving and tax-harvesting strategies — may be appropriate for your situation. Talk to your J.P. Morgan Private Client Advisor who, along with your tax professional, can recommend tax-efficient investment strategies.
How do trust funds factor into the college planning process?
It depends on whether you're thinking about setting up a trust fund for the benefit of a child's education or if the child already has a trust. Most trust funds are counted as assets in the financial aid application process, often as an asset of the child. Your best move is to have a legal or tax professional review the trust document. A conversation with your J.P. Morgan Private Client Advisor can help determine the role trust funds could play in planning for a child's college education.
Our daughter will be ready for college well before we're ready to retire. What's the best way to balance the two goals?
It's not uncommon for families to balance multiple goals. Ideally, you should start early to fund a college education so that your money has plenty of time to grow. But prioritizing your goals doesn't always mean ranking them by what's next on the horizon.
Investors often make the mistake of tapping their retirement plan assets to pay for tuition. If you're shy of your goal by the time the child is ready for college, borrowing money may, in fact, be a better solution. Talk to your J.P. Morgan Private Client Advisor about your personal situation to learn how you can accomplish both goals.
As the global economy continues to evolve, J.P. Morgan offers unique insights about the economic and social challenges our clients and the industry are facing now and in the future.
