If you were choosing a surgeon, would you be more interested in the doctor’s credentials and experience or in understanding every step of the surgical process?

Conversely, the less time you have, the more you need to look at increased risk or changes in lifestyle to meet your goals. ◆ Health. Health impacts our retirement in a couple of ways.
While the difference between the numbers may speak to issues of biological life expectancy, stress, and lifestyle, the vast majority of retiring households have two or more people to support at retirement and for some number of years thereafter.

It also makes it more difﬁcult to choose the right ﬁnancial planner because of the two unique personalities at work along with the new dynamic of a third person.
