I know no one likes to live on a budget but when you retire and are no longer collecting a paycheck its critical you live within your means and or monthly cash flow.
The big problem I have found is most people don't really know what they spend per month.

Even things you may only pay a few times time a year like vacations, gifts, donations, real estate property tax need to broken down and shown as a monthly cost to get a true picture of your cash flow needs.
Our downloadable form will help you determine your true income and monthly reoccurring expenses. After you know these numbers you will be in a better position to determine if your portfolio will be able to meet your financial long term needs.
