With life expectancy on the rise thanks to better health care, disease control and less physically demanding jobs, most people now face the prospect of living longer. In this episode of The Money Podcast, Justin Harrison and Dawie Bester talk about living a long life, and how to plan for this financially.
The problem is that whilst life expectancy is on the rise, financial planning around extended life expectancy has not quite caught up, and it is expected that in the next 50 years fewer and fewer pension plans will be able to support the ageing populations of the world, and so now more than ever it's become essential to create a financial plan that could support you living to a 100 and beyond.
Join Justin and Dawie for this episode as they discuss how to create a retirement plan that will outlive you and continue to provide returns for your family long after you are gone. Click below to listen.
Meanwhile, death is not a subject most of us like to think about, let alone plan
for. But according to Justin Harrison and Dawie
Bester we should all have a death file.
The fact is none of us is going to escape it, so we may as well plan for it. Unlike traditional estate planning which involves creating a will, possibly setting up a family trust and ensuring you nominate an executor for your estate, today we look at an additional element to make the transition of your death that little bit easier for your friends and family.
Take a listen below as Justin and Dawie explain what a death file is, and why you need it.
