Just because you've retired doesn't mean you have to stop working. However, working income may affect your social security earnings.
Retirement income planning is not what it used to be. Today it is far more complex. There are more choices and more decisions that have to be made, from Social Security, to income taxes, to how to create income, to making the money last - each decision is usually irrevocable so it's important we get it right the first time." Michael Aloi, CFP
