Professor Reichenstein advocates calculating an individual’s after-tax asset allocation that is based on after-tax balances in each savings vehicle.
His research shows creating a tax-efficient withdrawal strategy to generate retirement income can add up to seven years of added longevity for someone in retirement. He believes financial advisors can add considerable value to clients’ portfolios by helping them combine a smart Social Security claiming strategy with a tax-efficient withdrawal strategy that minimizes the adverse consequences of these tax-code complexities, while taking advantage of the more favorable tax environment that is scheduled to exist through 2025.
The rules for accumulating savings for retirement do not apply when family transitions to decumulation and needs to figure out how to tap savings to support their spending. Generating retirement income from savings is complicated and needs to incorporate key variables like Social Security, Medicare, Roth Conversions, and tax minimization.
