Retirement Planning

Now more than ever, planning for your retirement is critical. Gone are the days when pensions and Social Security provided all of the income you needed for retirement. The new reality is that you are often responsible for managing your own retirement, and that starts with making sure you’re strategic in your planning.

We can help. At Northwestern Mutual, our approach to retirement planning is designed to help you get to—and through—retirement with a greater level of financial confidence, so you can relax knowing you have a road map to achieve your goals.

Through our Signature Retirement program, we'll work with you to address three key retirement goals: Create a stream of reliable income to meet living expenses, protect retirement savings and leave a legacy to loved ones or charity.

You'll want to start by considering how much to save for retirement and where to save it. By accumulating as much as you can as soon as you can, you can put time on your side—time to plan, time to weather the ups and downs of the market and time to let your money grow. Learn more about saving for retirement on Northwestern Mutual's website or download our white paper, “Retirement Saving: 5 Key Insights You Need to Know.

And then, as you zero in on retirement, you'll need a different set of strategies to manage risk and make your money last through retirement. Learn more about turning your money into a steady stream of retirement income in our 2-minute video, Getting to and Through Retirement. Or, on the Northwestern Mutual website you can learn about strategies to optimize your retirement income as you approach retirement.
