Income planning is a segment of retirement planning. It focuses on mapping out and sustaining preferred income streams during retirement. A common concern for retired or near-retired Americans is: "How will I get the lifelong income I need to maintain a comfortable lifetyle?"

Why do Routine Strategies Fail?
Many investors employ wealth accumulation strategies for extended periods -- sometimes even for a lifetime. But a growth focus isn't always the solution. After all, at some point, retirement becomes a timeline of decumulation. You will face the challenge of replacing income from a salary or a business enterprise with new income streams. Those streams may consist of:
- Social Security,
- Possibly pension payments, and/or
- Money from your retirement portfolio and other sources.
An accumulation strategy may seem a logical counterbalance to your withdrawal rate. Generally speaking, the market will be up for much of the time. But once you enter market-down periods in retirement -- and it is a question of when, not if -- a growth-focused strategy is unlikely to overcome those losses.
In early-retirement, investment losses can be devastating for future income certainty. Financial experts refer to this possibility of "sequence of returns risk." And once an investor has sustained losses, it is a matter of recovery. So, if you have a growth-focused plan in place, it makes income certainty depend on what the market does in the future.
