Morningstar® Retirement Manager
It may not be rocket science. Or brain surgery. But that doesn’t mean retirement planning isn’t without its share of challenges. Between figuring out your asset allocation and rebalancing your portfolio, it’s enough to make anyone’s head spin. Fortunately, there is help. It’s called Morningstar® Retirement ManagerSM.
Morningstar Retirement Manager is available to you as part of Nevada Deferred Compensation’s (NDC) retirement plan. It’s a service designed to give you the power to make informed decisions about your employer’s retirement savings plan without having to have an advanced degree in micro-economics. While asset allocation and rebalancing are well-known investment strategies, neither strategy can assure nor guarantee better performance and cannot protect against loss in declining markets.

Annual Retirement Income Outlook considers such things as your asset mix and Morningstar Investment Management, LLC's own forecasts for return, risks and correlation for various asset classes. The Expected Retirement Income noted within the tool is the amount the simulation has determined as having a 90% probability of being achieved.
Annual Retirement Income Goal is calculated by taking 70% of your projected salary at retirement, expressed in today's dollars. Your projected salary at retirement is determined by a proprietary salary growth curve and your projected social security benefits. Morningstar Investment Management, LLC's salary growth curve assumes your salary will grow at rates that vary with your age. Projected social security benefit is based off of an algorithm supplied by the Social Security Administration.
Proposed Asset Mix is derived from various factors such as your years to retirement, your projected salary growth and results from an asset-liability analysis. The asset-liability analysis is an economic concept that is helpful in understanding your ability to withstand financial losses by incorporating a projected future stream of income into your current financial situation.
