"If you're near or at retirement, this is just one more duck you need to get in a row. Retirement doesn't have to be hard, but it does require some planning."
ROCKFORD, IL, April 16, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Longtime financial advisor Herb Allen has something he'd like to add to all retirees' bucket lists.
"Retirees have one more job to do and it's a big one," says Allen, President and CEO of MainStreet Financial Group. "As wonderful as it is that today's retiree can anticipate a potential retirement of 30-plus years, we need to plan for the most significant risk that can threaten a happy, successful retirement."

"If you're near or at retirement, this is just one more duck you need to get in a row. Retirement doesn't have to be hard, but it does require some planning," Allen says.
