When we retire, we often wonder how we can sustain our lifestyle for the rest of our lives with the savings we have.

In this episode, we’ll discuss many guidelines and spending strategies for your retirement. We will establish the "4% rule," which states that pensioners should be able to live comfortably for up to 30 years on an annual withdrawal of 4% of their accumulated assets. Determining withdrawal plans also involves taking into account variables like retirement expenses, including unforeseen medical costs, market changes, and personal tax rates. So, it is advised to create a budget and seek professional advice to achieve financial security in retirement.

Tune in to this episode to learn more about the '4% rule' and essential strategies for a worry-free retirement. Don't leave your financial future to chance. Take the first step towards securing your retirement today. Remember, it's never too early to start planning!
