Upon entering retirement, the replacement of your “paycheck” must be defined. Creating a cash flow plan that clearly defines where your cash flow will come from will help mitigate traditional concerns regarding the “sequence of returns” danger.

Creating a plan in seeking to reduce this risk is vital to the success of your retirement.
