Delynn Alexander featured in The Simple Dollar

Delynn Alexander was featured in the September 6, 2018 article, "Key Conversations You Need to Have Before Retirement" where she discussed the importance of having open conversations with your spouse or partner about retirement plans to ensure that you're on the same page about goals and dreams. "Many couples assume they have a shared vision for retirement, or that the vision (even when it is shared) is realistic," says Delynn Alexander. Key things to discuss include identifying where you want to live (both the location and type of residence), determining whether you want to continue working in any capacity during retirement and identifying what your financial priorities will be. "In other words, are you spending all of your savings, or leaving a legacy for the kids or charity?"

Delynn suggested mapping out the best way to meet your goals and following the plan to decide your next financial move. "Think of a financial plan as something that's living, breathing, and changeable, depending on things like the status of your job and global economy. They need to have some flexibility around changing conditions, whether those changes are internal or external."
