Retirement Income

Live comfortably ever after

Will you outlast your resources? It’s not the most comfortable question in the world, but it is perhaps the most vital concern—especially in the years leading up to and including your retirement.

It's also a question that's directly related to finding the best way to ride out the twists and turns of a volatile market, a low interest rate environment and the naturally increasing healthcare demands that come with aging. Finding the best options for your savings is more important than ever.

Our approach and experience will enable you to maximize your retirement savings, get the most from your investment portfolio and minimize the effects of costs such as taxes and healthcare expenses. Let our team of Wealth Advisors work with you to devise a personalized retirement plan that helps you financially prepare for, transition to and maximize your resources during retirement.

We can help you address multiple priorities that include:

  • Managing your assets to generate sufficient income to support your lifestyle
  • Keeping pace with inflation
  • Meeting unanticipated healthcare expenses
  • Weathering market volatility

Generating stable income from your retirement savings that will last a lifetime: That’s quite a daunting challenge. Your Burke & Herbert Wealth Management Wealth Advisor will help you meet that challenge by adding insight and subtracting confusion from the equation.

We’ll formulate clear strategies to create capital, diversify your portfolio and reallocate your assets as your needs and circumstances change. The priceless result: greater confidence in your ability to enjoy a secure retirement.
