Producers Prospect: The Time to Plan for Retirement is Right Now

Every American hopes to have a calm, quiet, and idyllic retirement. Many hardworking people save diligently for their entire adult lives in order to retire, but when an unexpected problem arises and threatens to upend decades of careful planning, they find themselves at a loss. According to Producers Prospect founder Marc S. Rogers, this is a frightening reality for many Americans. “Whether it be a health emergency, an unstable economy, or some other disastrous circumstance, there are tons of unpredictable forces out there that can have severe impacts on your retirement plans,” he explains. “Retirement is an especially vulnerable time for everyone, and we think it’s essential to educate the public on how they can sufficiently provide for their futures.” 

Meet Marc S. Rogers

Over the course of his 15-year career in the financial services industry, Marc S. Rogers has become a respected name in the field. His company, Producers Prospect, is working to educate all ages of Americans on the importance of planning for retirement and preparing for potential curveballs that may come your way and knock down your dreams for a simple and quiet retirement.

According to Rogers, it’s important to start planning for retirement as early as possible. “You should start planning as soon as you start working,” he advises. “After all, that is what you’re working towards, right? If you start laying the path towards your goal from the moment you begin, you’re much more likely to get there in the end — and often with time and money to spare.”

Expecting the Unexpected

The world we live in is far from perfect, and even less predictable. We can be surprised by tragedy, disaster, or decline at any time, bringing our golden days to a screeching halt without warning. Rogers believes that taking the time to adequately prepare for potential bumps in your retirement journey is one of the best gifts you can give your future self. “It’s always a matter of ‘hope for the best, plan for the worst,’” says Rogers. “We always want to be prepared in case something unexpected comes along and makes a mess of our plans.” This means staying informed about potential threats to your financial security and learning how to protect yourself should trouble arise.

According to Rogers, three of the most common concerns that retirees have are related to healthcare, inflation, and taxes

Rising costs of medical care and diminishing health as we age make it difficult to determine how much you’ll need to retire with any certainty. We all age differently, and some of us experience different medical conditions than others. It’s impossible to know what you’ll be facing at the end of a long life, but it’s best to prepare as much as you can. 

Inflation is another unpredictable variable in retirement planning. In recent years, we have seen a fast rise in the rate of inflation, which means retirees are burning through their savings much quicker than usual. This is a serious concern for many retirees: how can you tell how much you’ll need when the scale keeps sliding every few years?

Many retirees use savings vehicles such as 401(k)s, annuities, and IRAs to reduce their tax burden as much as possible, a move that Rogers thinks is becoming increasingly important with the aforementioned rises in healthcare, inflation, and prices. “We want to help people prepare for these contingencies and find ways to protect themselves in advance, so when it comes time to retire, they can kick back and relax.”

Producers Prospect is sharing valuable knowledge designed to guide many Americans nearing retirement towards a peaceful, secure, and worry-free future.
