How should Social Security, annuities, pensions and other forms of guaranteed income affect our asset allocation during retirement. Some argue that we should treat them like bonds. They offer near guaranteed, stable income, and therefore, they should constitute part of our bond allocation.
A better approach, in my opinion, is to simply reduce or annual income requirements be the amount of these guaranteed payments. Then base our asset allocation on any additional income we need to generate from our investments.
I walk through both approaches in this video.
