How will the suspected slightly higher 2021 inflation going to affect your retirement plan?

Inflation is the increase of prices in an economy over time but with income remaining relatively the same. The 2020 pandemic disrupted the economy on so many levels including the increase in demand and decrease in supply.

In this episode of the Secure Your Retirement podcast, we talk about inflation and how to protect your retirement plan from its impact.  We also cover why you need to work with a financial professional to ensure your investment strategy is working well with the rising inflationary type of period.

In this episode, find out:

  • Understanding the meaning of inflation and how the 2020 decrease in supply led to inflation.
