Maximizing RMDs: A Bright Path in Your Retirement Journey
Retirement–the golden age of life when you finally get to sit back and enjoy all those years of work. But what happens when you have those Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) staring you down, and you don’t really need the money for day-to-day expenses? Well, my friend, fear not! Let’s chat about some options you have that will put those RMDs to work for you!
Leave a Legacy: You can create a meaningful legacy for your grandchildren by using a portion of your RMDs to purchase a life insurance policy and name them as beneficiaries. This thoughtful decision can help ensure they have a solid foundation to pursue their dreams and ambitions even after you’re gone. You could also purchase a policy in their name, making them the insured. This option can allow your legacy to continue for generations to come. KSKJ Life has a number of whole life insurance options to help.
Open an Annuity: A KSKJ Life non-qualified Flex Annuity1 or Single Premium Immediate Annuity (SPIA) can help to provide you with a dependable source of income, ensuring a stable financial rhythm throughout your golden years. Think of it as a consistent paycheck that keeps the tunes of your retirement melody playing smoothly.
Give Back: Feel like giving back to the community and making the world a better place? Use your distribution to make an RMD-Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). A QCD offers a great way to easily give to charity before the end of the year and can be counted towards your RMD for the year. As a KSKJ Life member, you belong to an organization whose mission includes reinvesting back into our communities.
