When Should I Retire From Chevron?

After committing your time and talents to Chevron for years, or even decades, you’ve probably achieved some goals and milestones you’re proud of. As your official retirement date and celebration approach, you’ve probably also dedicated yourself to building a financial foundation for your post-Chevron years. 

At this point, you may feel you’ve done everything you can possibly do to retire in a comfortable financial state from your tenure at Chevron. However, there’s one seemingly trivial option that can have a big impact on your retirement savings; it’s choosing the right timing for your retirement. 

In this webinar, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional Alexis Long discusses six key considerations you should keep in mind when planning your retirement date. The webinar, Timing Chevron Retirement, covers: 

  • The multiple different streams of income many Chevron retirees can expect to receive, including: 
    • Your 401(k), the Chevron Employee Savings Investment Plan (ESIP)
    • Your bonus, the Chevron Incentive Plan (CIP)
    • Your qualified pension, the Chevron Retirement Plan (CRP)
    • Your non-qualified pension, the Chevron Retirement Restoration Plan (RRP)
    • Deferred Compensation Plans (DCPs) you may be eligible for
  • Which income streams have the potential to clash, as far as choosing the best date goes, and what to consider when deciding which one(s) to prioritize 
  • The outsized impact income taxes can have on your retirement funds, and how to time your retirement and distributions in a way that minimizes your tax burden

When preparing for retirement, we recommend taking a close and careful look at your top streams of Chevron-derived income and their impact on your personal finances.
