Webinar | Pension Buyouts: What’s Best For You & Your Family

    | October 29, 2021

    Pension plans are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Fewer and fewer companies offer pension plans, and those that still do are increasingly turning to pension buyouts as a way to continue funding pensions into the future. If you have been offered a pension buyout, there are a number of factors you should consider before making your decision.


    Telemus Financial Life Advisor Bob Hochkins, AWMA®, recently hosted a webinar where he outlined the key considerations to keep in mind if you receive a pension buyout offer. Specifically, Bob discussed:

    • The importance of establishing a budget before making your decision
    • When a pension buyout may make sense—and when it may not
    • The pros and cons of an annual pension vs. a lump sum buyout payment
    • How to analyze your financial objectives to determine which option best fits your needs
