Two Buckets. One Plan.

A good way to begin developing a retirement plan is to look at your financial situation in terms of two buckets, and assessing how much you will need for each:

Your Essentials Bucket

What’s in it: guaranteed sources of income, like pensions, Social Security and annuities.

What it pays for: all of your basic needs, including housing, food, clothing, healthcare and transportation.

Guaranteed income from annuities or other systematic withdrawal plans can be used to cover gaps in paying for your essentials.

Your Discretionary Bucket

What’s in it: non-guaranteed sources such as mutual funds, stocks, bonds, CDs and real estate.

What it pays for:  those fun things that you dream of doing in retirement, like traveling, eating out, and entertainment. Think of this as your "retirement lifestyle" bucket.
