Food for Thought – Considering Eating Habits During Retirement

When your clients are planning for retirement, what are some of their main goals?

Some clients may want to have a guaranteed source of lifetime income through the purchase of an annuity. Others may have concerns about unforeseen circumstances where long-term care might be needed. Then you have those who want to either leave a legacy through life insurance or have their funeral services covered through final expense insurance.

AIP Marketing Alliance wants to give you and your clients some food for thought. How much of their retirement savings should be allocated just for food and drink expenses? Your clients may overlook just how much a food budget may impact their retirement planning.

To help our members and agents understand food expenses, AIPMA has created a new infographic showing potential food costs for a couple during a 20-year period. We’ve done the math for you to take into consideration the costs.

Think about it. Two people having three meals per day, seven days per week, 52 weeks per year for 20 years. Everything adds up during retirement, and this infographic hopefully will provide an educational look at eating in retirement.
