It's no secret that all retirement calculators are not created equal, and it's been well reported that the same inputs receive varying longevity results across retirement tools. Now, research shows that many of these calculators cheat investors out of six or more years of retirement income by using inefficient drawdown strategies.This discovery comes from the research article, "Tax-Efficient Withdrawal Strategies," published in The Financial Analysts Journal and written by William Meyer, CEO, Retiree Inc., and William Reichenstein, PhD, Co-founder, Retiree Inc. Join Retiree Income for this educational webinar to hear the research authors debunk the conventional wisdom around tax-efficient retirement withdrawals, which suggests that in investor should withdraw funds from one account at a time moving to the next one after the previous is exhausted, starting with tax-deferred accounts and moving to tax-exempt accounts. Meyer and Reichenstein will demonstrate that this conventional wisdom, which many retirement income tools are built on, is not the most tax efficient.
