New Haven, Conn. (WTNH) – When people start thinking about retirement, there seem to be so many variables that can impact their planning.

Ben Fuchs, founder of Fuchs Financial, joined CT Style’s Rachel Lutzker to discuss people’s priorities as they approach retirement age, and what exactly they’re concerned about.

In addition to being a Certified Financial Planner ® (CFP), Ben is also a Certified Private Wealth Advisor® (CPWA) professional.

Ben says that we’ve all seen the ups and downs in the economy, and studies show that life expectancy has been going up for both men and women.

In this interview, Ben answers the following questions:

  • Are future retirees more concerned about growth and general wealth in retirement,
    or about having a steady income?
  • Why is living longer a concern for many people?
  • What should impact your decision about when to start taking Social Security?
  • What are some of the key issues to consider when looking at your whole
    retirement  picture?
