◇ Three advices from FP Yasuhiko Fukano
Advice 1: There is no financial concern if you retire as it is
Tip 2: No need to downsize your life
Advice 3: Reduce insurance and slim down your household

◆ Advice 1: There is no financial anxiety even if you retire as it is
I’m sick, so I’d like to ask you if there is any problem with your money plan if you retire as it is, but it’s okay. I hope that you will be retired with peace of mind and concentrate on your treatment.

Let’s make a trial calculation. First, let’s assume that Mr. Natsu, the counselor, will basically continue the same life as he is now. Therefore, the monthly living expenses are 407,000 yen (for convenience, the education expenses of 15,000 yen are deducted).

If you add the annual payment of insurance premiums and travel expenses, which have been paid out from the bonus, on a monthly basis, it will be about 440,000 yen. Since the income is only for the husband, the income and expenditure will be a deficit of about 242,000 yen every month.

Also, apart from this, it is necessary to consider the future education costs of the younger child. The amount varies depending on the course, but here I will assume it is 10 million yen.

The current financial assets are 53.8 million yen in total of savings and investment products. If Natsu Aki’s retirement allowance is added to this, it will be 71.8 million yen. From here, we will deduct a total deficit of 17.4 million yen for living expenses for 6 years until the husband reaches retirement age.

In addition, regarding educational expenses, if the maturity of student insurance is 1.8 million yen and the maturity of endowment insurance is 1 million yen x 2 for the budget of 10 million yen, the actual savings will be derived. 6.2 million yen.

Therefore, the amount of money left on hand at the age of 60 for the husband is 48.2 million yen.

Next, regarding the income and expenditure after the age of 60, suppose that the husband fully retires at this age. The income comes from the public pension and the insurance, but the living expenses are 400,000 yen a month because the insurance premiums are reduced by about 40,000 yen on a monthly basis after the age of 60. 24 million yen in 5 years. If you get all this out of your savings, you’ll have 24.2 million yen left.

And, although it is a trial calculation ahead of schedule, I will add the amount of individual annuity insurance received here. The total amount of the couple with a fixed payment period is 38.2 million yen.

If the whole life type lived up to 90 years old, it would cost about 29 million yen. The total amount of payment will be 67.2 million yen, so when the husband is 65 years old, he will have a total of 91.4 million yen in financial assets.

The amount of public pension received by a married couple is 3.31 million yen. The monthly amount is 276,000 yen, but if the actual take-home amount after deducting taxes and social insurance premiums is 240,000 yen, the monthly deficit is 160,000 yen. It costs 48 million yen in 25 years if you live to be 90 years old.

In other words, at the age of 90, about 43.4 million yen remains as cash on hand. Considering the risk of longevity, medical care, and long-term care costs, it can be said that there is no need to worry about financial resources.

◆ Advice 2: No need to downsize your life
As I estimated earlier, the cost of living will probably be lower as you get older. In addition, the retirement allowance for the husband was unknown, so it is not added. Furthermore, every year, a total of 2 million yen in calendar year gifts from the couple’s parents is excluded from the estimation.

If we continue for another 5 years, we will have an additional 10 million yen and financial margin. In any case, there is no need to downsize your life, such as lowering housing costs. Travel expenses are only 50,000 yen a year, but there is no problem if you spend more money.

◆ Advice 3: You can reduce insurance and slim down your household budget.
There is no need to collect and review the household budget. However, I feel a little wasteful about how to get insurance.

If you are uneasy and unavoidable if the guarantee is not great, or if you have to join due to work, you can leave it as it is. However, if this is not the case, I think it is okay to cancel all of the insurance that you are currently paying, except for individual annuity insurance, medical insurance, and fire insurance.

Death protection is to prepare for the life of the bereaved family in case of emergency. Moreover, he has no intention of leaving financial assets to his three children. In that case, it would be good if the elementary school children could prepare the funds to become members of society, so the current savings should be sufficient.

As for medical insurance, the minimum necessary insurance is secured by the medical insurance that both husband and wife have. It can be said that it is rational to use the floating insurance premiums for savings and to pay for medical expenses that cost more than that.

Speaking of the burden, it is still a reduction of about 10,000 yen. It’s not a big plus for the whole household, but it also makes sense to review it in terms of slimming down the household.

◆ Impressions from the counselor “Natsu Aki”
My wife, my wife, has a higher salary, and when I retired, my husband was particularly worried about whether I could live on the salary of one husband.

Thanks to Dr. Fukano’s accurate advice, my husband feels at ease and I can concentrate on my treatment. I would like to immediately consider reviewing the insurance you pointed out. I’m really thankful to you.
