1. Can I afford to retire?
2. What is the best age for me to start collecting social security?
3. How do I position my assets to last as long as I do?
4. How can I participate in market growth but protect myself from market risk?
5. What do I do in case I need long term care?
6. Is my estate set up so that my heirs receive my assets in the most tax efficient manner?
