A few comments from listeners:

Eye opening on the hurdles such as low returns, higher taxes and inflation along with living longer and less social security.

Great topic and Ric's comments further validated my approach to planning. Understanding the demographic shift and disruptive technology and communicating that to clients was a new must have.

I'll continue to recommend disability insurance and life insurance. While many diseases will be eliminated, there will still be some illnesses that will prevent someone from working, such as mental health issues. Thanks for a great session.

I love ChatGPT and am excited to incorporate it into my practice. I have started a sort of "study" group or mastermind group with my Second 50 client group and plan to incorporate some of the future trends #s and concepts; already ordered Rik's books and signed up for his crypto course to better understand.

Longevity planning is going to be the norm, not the exception. We only have a few plans running to 100 but should probably update everyone's to reflect that.

"Interesting question above, re: tech advances and life expectancy. We will see tech advances, and those advances will have a major impact on life expectancy over time. However, for those who are already at an advanced age, the tech of the next ten years may not have a significant on their life expectancy.

Continuing above: ""running out of money"" comes from not knowing how much you can safely spend, or choosing not to keep spending below that amount. If you spend less, you ""should"" be fine"

Many of us have absolutely no or very little knowledge on Cryptocurrency and/or Blockchain assets for Seniors. This was an Excellent Presentation !!!.

There was so much info about the coming age that I was unaware of! Ric was effective in his communication style and content. Thank you! That was one of the most insightful webinars that I have ever attended. I was glued to the screen and mesmerized by its content

The pace of change is happening faster than anyone can imagine. Ric did a good job in painting the extrapolation picture with facts, figures, etc. He sounded the alarm that our thinking around planning needs to refresh much sooner than might have been expected. I am going to suggest to my planning team that we increase the male/female life expectancy defaults that we are currently using in our plans.
