Preparing for retirement can be a challenging task. Long gone are the days when many retirees could rely solely on their pension and Social Security for income in retirement.

Today’s economy, low interest rates, and market volatility are all important factors to consider when planning for retirement. One of the hardest parts of retirement planning is the mental shift that is required – going from an earning and savings paradigm to having to generate income through other sources after that paycheck.

About Retirement Education Center

Retirement Education Center is a fiduciary financial advisor, which means, we must act in our clients' best interests and disclose conflicts of interest. In legal terms, a fiduciary is an individual or organization that has taken on the responsibility of acting on behalf of another person or entity with utmost honesty and integrity. Retirement Education Center - Your Top Retirement Challenge

Founded in 2001 and servicing the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, Carson Enterprise (Retirement Education Center) has access to attorneys, accountants, CFPs, CFAs and other needed professionals to help clients from all walks of life achieve retirement success.

We work with some of the most highly rated companies and advisors in the world to help provide a highly sophisticated and collaborative approach to assist us with our client's financial needs. We provide a "one stop" resource for seniors and retirees seeking financial advice by offering personalized information regarding updated retirement changes that may impact our client's retirement goals.

We specialize in providing strategies and guidance for those who are seeking a better lifestyle in retirement. The following are areas we specialize in:

Retirement Planning

Where will your retirement money come from? If you’re like most people, qualified-retirement plans, Social Security, and personal savings and investments are expected to play a role. Once you have estimated the amount of money you may need for retirement, a sound approach involves taking a close look at your potential retirement-income sources. A number of questions and concerns need to be addressed to help you better prepare for retirement living.

Estate Management

Effective estate management enables you to manage your affairs during your lifetime and control the distribution of your wealth after death. An effective estate strategy can spell out your healthcare wishes and ensure that they're carried out – even if you are unable to communicate. It can even designate someone to manage your financial affairs should you be unable to do so. A will may be only one of the documents you need—and one factor to consider—when it comes to managing your estate.

Social Security Maximization Retirement Education Center can help you with Social Security Maximization.

Social Security benefits, when combined with savings from a 401(k) and individual retirement account, can help you retire the way you want. Of course, not everyone earns the same amount from Uncle Sam. Our Social Security Maximization report we can help you Maximize this benefit.

Long-Term Care Planning

Are you financially prepared?

According to Genworth's Cost of Care Survey, a semi-private room at a nursing home in Texas can cost $4,798.00 / mo. and $6,540.00 / mo. for a private room. For assisted living you're looking at an average of $3,515 / mo.  which is slightly under the national average of $4,000 / month. Some of these factors include location, length of stay and care services required.
