Ep #108: What You Don’t Know About Retirement Will Hurt You – With Michael Gerali

David Saltzman 0 Comments


Should HSAs be thought of as more of a retirement than healthcare tool? We ask practitioner and author Michael Gerali that question and more on this week’s ShiftShapers Podcast.

Michael Gerali is the managing principal at HR Solutions and has co-authored a fascinating book, What You Don’t Know About Retirement Will Hurt You! that explodes some of the myths and misconceptions around retirement and retirement planning. We asked him to join us to discuss the topic of retirement and where it overlaps with the benefits industry.

In this interesting discussion, we dive into the things that baby boomers and their advisors don’t know about the relationship between their health care costs and retirement and why so many think they will not be affected by it. Michael shares the three main rules of retirement and we explore what advisors need to know when talking to their prospects and clients about these critical issues. Learn how you can expand your practice by seamlessly integrating your client’s retirement planning with the benefit advisement you already offer.
