gaining in retirement

Income generators: what they are and why you need them By Meghan DieMel


o, you’ve reached retirement age — unfortunately for many Americans, retirement in 2014 probably looks much different than how it was envisioned 30 years ago. It’s more important than ever before to ensure you’re investing properly to continue generating income from those investments. “If you have a couple who retires at 65, there’s an 85 percent chance that one of them will live to the age of 90,” says Toni Miller, associate director with Global View Capital Advisors in Waukesha, with offices in Green Bay. “That’s a 25-year retirement, and that means your money needs to continue working for you.” Retirement income generators are methods that provide systematic withdrawals in which a retiree’s savings are invested and a portion periodically withdrawn to provide a paycheck in retirement. There are many variations, but most methods fall into three general categories, in addition to one method that’s a combination of the three, says John Wetli, vice president investments at Stifel in Green Bay. “The first is to live off of only interest and dividends from your portfolio, which is invested in CDs, bonds, stocks, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), mutual funds, or a combination of the above,” explains Wetli. “Second is a fixed monthly withdrawal known as a systematic withdrawal, which may exceed your interest and dividends generated and require a conservative strategy of spending some principal to achieve the desired level of income. This strategy is often modified annually by adjusting for market performance and inflation.” The third method is to purchase some type of annuity to generate a 2 | WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2014

guaranteed monthly income for life, Wetli adds. While some annuities may provide income for joint life so income is provided as long as either spouse is alive, Wetli cautions there are several types, including immediate, fixed/indexed, and variable. “Each one has advantages and disadvantages, so be sure you understand what you are buying and the benefits that match your needs,” he states. “Any guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company, and annuities are not insured by the FDIC or any other government agency.” The fourth and most common strategy is a combination of methods, which takes advantage of the strengths of each. Which method is a good choice for an individual depends on many variables; risk tolerance, age, asset size, and income needs all play a factor, so the optimal strategy may be a blend of two or three of the income generators. “Different income sources for retirement may help you be better prepared to withstand different economic situations, such as low interest rates or recession,” he furthers. While the general guideline used for annual withdrawal rates during retirement is 4 percent, the financial climate of recent years and the associated costs of living expenses like health care test the validity of that amount, notes Miller.

A retiree needs to remain acutely cognizant of their spending habits in comparison to the funds available to them and work with their financial adviser to figure out what works for their needs, she says. And even if one has been less than diligent in saving toward retirement, Miller quotes Warren Buffet’s famous words of reassurance. “He says the best time to plant a tree was 30 years ago. The second best time is today.” GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE

young at heart Foster Grandparent Rick Steeber works with De Pere’s youngest residents BY AMELIA COMPTON WOLFF

sawed-off little elf of a boy clumsily kicks a red ball in the direction of Rick Steeber who receives it with a dexterity that defies his 61 years of age. “This time of year is great because you can get the kids outside to burn some energy,” Steeber says over his shoulder as he sends the ball back to his young companion. His playmate attempts to kick the ball back, but it stops several feet short. “Uh, Grandpa Rick,” the boy says, pointing at the ball now equidistant between the two. “Right, sorry,” Steeber says as he jogs to the ball and gently kicks it back. It’s a little murky as to who is burning whose energy. It’s a cloudless late-summer day and Steeber is spending the morning the way he spends four mornings, Monday through Thursday, every week during the summer: playing ball, accepting gifts of hand-picked flowers (actually weeds) and deflecting the occasional disagreement on the playground of Encompass Early Education and Care in De Pere.

Steeber is known as “Grandpa Rick” to the 18 4-and 5-year-olds he works with through Encompass’s Foster Grandparent Program. When he isn’t on the playground, Steeber is assisting with mealtime preparation, reading books aloud, building towers out of Legos, accompanying kids on fieldtrips and basically doing what any biological grandparent would do. The West De Pere resident discovered the Foster Grandparent Program with Encompass in the Brown County United Way’s email newsletter, Community Connections. Steeber fit the requirements — he was over 55 years old, met the income guidelines, was in good health and enjoyed working with children — so he applied and was accepted in March 2013. “I called both of my daughters (Ariel, 25 and Libby, 21) when I took this job a year and a half ago and said ‘You’re both off the hook.’ I went from zero to 18 grandkids in one day,” Steeber says with a laugh. Foster Grandparent Coordinator Katharine Kulkoski says the program has dual purpose. “The mission of the program is two-fold,” Kulkoski says. “It was created to help seniors continue to be active in the community. It keeps seniors healthy — physically, mentally and emotionally. It benefits the children as well. They really make strides.” Kulkoski says foster grandparents provide children with a consistent grandparent figure who mentors and encourages them in play and educational activities. Foster grandparents are assigned to one of seven Encompass locations in Green Bay and De Pere, and volunteer a minimum of 15 hours per week. In return, foster grandparents receive a small, tax-free stipend, transportation allowance, annual paid leave as well as a social outlet with children and adults, whether they are other foster grandparents or Encompass staff. The Foster Grandparent Program is part of the Senior Service Corps governed by the

Corporation for National Service and funded by state and federal dollars. Nationally, the Foster Grandparent Program will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2015. The program has been connecting seniors and children in Green Bay for 36 years. Steeber, who volunteers with many community organizations including Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Family, March of Dimes and The Einstein Project, says being a foster grandparent is an opportunity to get outside his comfort zone. “I’ve always been a big volunteer and I thought this would be another way to give back to a different group I’ve never given back to,” he says. “I’ve always been involved with adults from their 30s to their 80s, but never really got involved with kids so it was an opportunity to do something different.” Commitment and flexibility are two qualities that Kulkoski contributes to Steeber’s success as a foster grandparent. “He’s very flexible in the way he deals with the children and staff,” Kulkoski says. “He will alter his own schedule to meet the needs

sense of accomplishment. “The kids just love him. If he doesn’t come in they ask about him,” she says. “He really can get down on the level of the children in the classroom. He has that knack. He’s a very special guy.” Seeing his foster grandchildren learn and develop new skills is one of Steeber’s favorite things about being a foster grandparent. He also enjoys when the children share what they accomplished the day before. “I love the sharing time in the morning,” he says. “When I come in, the first thing they do is come say ‘Guess what, Grandpa Rick?’ or ‘Guess what I did, Grandpa Rick?’ It’s really kind of fun.”

lifelong learning Seniors find fulfillment in continuing education


magine exploring a far away place, baking up a tasty dish, creating a one-of-a-kind piece of art or joining in a lively discussion in Chinese. Older adults have the opportunity to make retirement exciting by indulging in lifelong learning.

Class options

While many seniors are interested in keeping their brain sharp, most aren’t willing to commit to a semester course or a program with strict attendance requirements. Fortunately, Green Bay is bursting with classes and programs designed to challenge the mind. From community centers to area colleges, free seminars to non-credit classes, older adults are able to explore their interests. Mike Murphy, chairperson of the communications committee for the Institute of Learning in Retirement on the UW-Green Bay campus, explains Learning in Retirement is like a health club for the mind. He says, “We have a rigorous program here at GB. We look at it from the viewpoint that we want to provide seniors with whatever they need to be successful agers.” Learning in Retirement offers more than 150 courses each semester, including cooking classes, a series of travel logs, music programs, game playing lessons and courses 6 | WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2014

BY JENNIFER HOGELAND to get older adults active. Classes typically range from one to four sessions. For a $100 annual membership fee, seniors register for as many classes as they’d wish. A computerized lottery system fairly places students in the most popular courses. If you are looking for a creative environment, Suzanne Morrin Ritter, manager and regional learning and community engagement, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC), explains the NWTC Artisan and Business Center offers hands-on courses and workshops in ceramics, woodturning, textiles, art metals and the Business of Art classes. There are a variety of workshops as well as an open studio. The Aging and Disability Resource Center, area community centers, local YMCAs, the YMCA and Green Bay Botanical Garden host classes that appeal to seniors. Programs include healthy living, computer seminars, crafts and more.

Social interaction

Lifelong learning programs offer social benefits as much educational opportunities. “All studies show that successful aging includes not just metal stimulation but also being in contact with others,” adds Murphy. “These relationships are one of the most important things we can offer.”

Going back to school as a retiree opens up new connections or builds on existing relationships. “Classes build community for seniors,” says Morrin Ritter. “When you retire, you lose that work community. By participating in a class, seniors are able to establish relationships with one another.”

Lifelong learning benefits

With work and family demands earlier in life, finding time to learn something new or to pursue areas of interest was difficult. Retirement is the time to explore topics and activities that spark your curiosity. Morrin Ritter adds, “When people enter their retirement years, they find it is a good time to explore their interests — do things they didn’t have the time or resources to do before.” Murphy explains lifelong learning is valuable to older adults because it keeps the mind alert, the body moving and seniors involved. “If you think of the alternative, people spending the day in their recliners watching TV, when you take classes you are getting out, you are learning new things, you are engaged with other people, you are getting at least a little exercise getting into the building — all of the things that has been proven to be important for retirees,” adds Murphy.

Electronic devices make it easy to enjoy your favorite books By Meghan DieMel


n a survey conducted by Pew Internet Research in January, the percentage of adults who read an e-book (electronic book) in the previous calendar year rose from 23 percent to 28 percent. For busy seniors on the go, e-readers are gaining in popularity because they provide ease during travel, while also allowing seniors the option to download books from home if travel is physically or logistically difficult. Anita Powers, 90, of Green Bay, says she bought her first basic Kindle about two years ago. “I wasn’t going to use it full time – I only wanted it for traveling so that I didn’t carry a suitcase full of books,” she explains. “So I was just looking for the cheapest model at the time that would serve my needs. I don’t really use it when I’m home, I’d rather hold a book. But it does have its uses.” E-readers allow owners to download e-books to the device at various price points from a variety of online sites. Wisconsin’s Digital Library ( is also a great place for those who have an e-reader – it’s the ease of checking out a book at the library, without the need for travel. “It’s a benefit if the seniors can’t physically visit the library, or they have a hard time getting rides, or if they aren’t driving anymore,” explains Andrea Stepanik, reference librarian with the Brown County Central Library. “If they have an e-reader and a library card, all they need is an Internet connection and they can get a wealth of books through Wisconsin’s Digital Library.” Powers recently received an iPad mini, to which she downloaded the Kindle app. She says she’s been using that more frequently than her original Kindle. 8 | WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2014

“The only problem with that is that it uses up the iPad battery faster,” says Powers. “The screen of the iPad mini also acts like a mirror and it’s really difficult to use that outside – you get the reflection from the sky or your surroundings. But it’s certainly quicker than the Kindle.” Powers finds the iPad mini particularly helpful when reading historical fiction, because it’s easy to enter in and out of the Kindle app to Google the unfamiliar and archaic words. “A lot of seniors citizens also appreciate the fact they can adjust the text so they can make it as big as they need it to be. They can also download audio books, so if they’re not ready to read, and they just want to listen, they can do that with any device that allows that,” furthers Stepanik. Just a few swipes of the finger can download an e-book to an e-reader, tablet, or even smartphone.

E-reader Help If you have an e-reader or tablet and would like help, the following support groups are offered through the Brown County Library during September: ● Tuesday, Sept. 23 - 1:30-3 p.m. Ashwaubenon branch, 1060 Orlando Dr. ● Thursday, Sept. 25 - 2:30-4:30 p.m. Central Library, 515 Pine St.

“If it’s a black-and-white reader, like a Kindle or a Nook ‘black-and-white’, they can just use their home computer to transfer e-books,” adds Stepanik. “You can access up to 10 books or audio books at a time. We have written instructions available on the Brown County Library website, where you can download them and read through them.” The library downtown and many of the branch libraries also offer e-book support groups. “People can come in, bring their device and we’ll walk them through the entire process,” states Stepanik. “It only takes about 20 minutes the first time and it gets easier and easier the more times you do it.” Powers says she made the trip to the library for help a few times and it was beneficial toward keeping her connected to one of her favorite pastimes. “I feel bereft if I have to go through a day without a chance to read at all,” she states.

When I was told I needed therapy I decided to go to Odd Fellow Home’s Astor Terrace Rehab because my family had good experience at Odd Fellow Home in the past. The stroke took away my ability to speak and walk. Seven weeks later, after therapy, I was able to have conversations like I did prior to the stroke and could walk independently with a walker. I cannot express enough how marvelous the staff at Odd Fellow Home has been to me and my family; they have been absolutely fabulous. Coming here was well worth every second. The food was delicious!

Acupuncture and acupressure relieve many ailments of aging


s humans age, chronic pain and mobility problems can greatly compromise their quality of life, among many other healthrelated issues. Acupuncture, a form of Chinese medicine, can successfully treat a wide variety of conditions that slow seniors down, including arthritis, loss of taste, tinnitus, sinusitis and respiratory ailments, acid reflux, constipation/ diarrhea, and even neuropathy. “Acupuncture is a drug-free, safe solution which helps to resolve many common ailments plaguing the elderly,” says Judith Rybicki, Director of Oriental Medicine at Asana Med Spa in Green Bay. “Seniors tend to be on too much medication and it drains their physical, mental and financial energy. For example, doctors may prescribe a drug for insomnia, digestive disorders or pain when in most cases acupuncture can resolve these [issues] in a couple of sessions.” The procedure involves inserting fine, sterile needles at specific points in the body. The needles are mostly painless, and they activate the body’s Qi (pronounced “chee”), or vital energy, to promote natural healing and wellness. Acupuncture promotes blood flow, stimulates the body’s built-in healing mechanisms, and releases the body’s natural painkillers such as endorphins, norepinephrine and enkephalin, studies have shown. It also relaxes shortened muscles and reduces stress. “Acupuncture has no negative side effects, no contraindications, no negative drug interactions. It is safe to use even if you are currently being treated by other [health] practitioners,” explains Robin B. Smith, certified acupuncturist for the Day Spa in De Pere. “As a matter of fact, acupuncture often amplifies and complements the other therapies beautifully. It has the ability to harmonize medications and therapies that don’t always complement each other naturally.”

10 | WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18, 2014

BY MICHELLE NIKOLAI Acupressure, or Chinese massage, is also a natural, effective remedy for a host of ailments and is particularly good for pain relief. As the name suggests, it involves applying pressure to and manipulating the acupoints, or pain relief points, and affected parts of the body. The word acupoint means a small hole for Qi, and according to Chinese medicine there are hundreds of acupoints throughout the body that are massaged to regulate the Qi-blood flow, which if disrupted can cause pain. Seniors can be taught to do acupressure on themselves by massaging specific points. Both Smith and Rybicki practice a form of massage called tuina (twee-na) which is acupuncture without needles. Arthritis is a common senior ailment that responds particularly well to acupuncture and acupressure. “Traditional treatment usually involves pharmaceuticals as well as other therapies such as heat or ice. Acupuncture addresses the arthritis pain and inflammation without introducing drugs into your system that often create digestive side effects,” Smith explains. “Often medications only work effectively for a time and once you have built a tolerance they become non-effective. There is also the issue of combining medications to consider as well.” “We move the Qi and the blood which brings inflammation down and apply heat when necessary if the joints are cold,” Rybicki says. “Chinese herbs are also an important aspect of treating arthritis. Alkalizing the body

is extremely important in reducing inflammation and maintaining a healthy immune system.” How long treatments last varies according to the individual, Smith says, and for some their problem improves and they remain symptomfree. Others may need to return for additional treatments periodically to remain pain and symptom-free. “The beauty of acupuncture is it is effective and totally custom-fitted to the individual. Until your acupuncturist evaluates you, there is no way to be absolutely certain except to say acupuncture works effectively, safely, and comfortably,” Smith explains. Seniors should look for an acupuncturist who is state and nationally licensed, Rybicki says, and another important consideration is how long they’ve been practicing. Look for patient testimonials on websites and blogs, and get a first-person referral if possible. “You should feel a confidence and trust in your practitioner; much like with any person giving personal service, there should be a rapport,” Smith says. “An acupuncturist should explain what is to happen and dialog with you before, during and after your treatment. You should have a fairly clear idea how things will progress in the future with your therapy. “Acupuncture feels and works like nothing else,” Smith concludes.
