An interview with financial life planning expert Roy Diliberto is presented. He believes that determining the client's lifestyle after retirement is essential rather than discussing the amount of money needed for the plan. He suggests that financial planners must carefully assess their client's retirement needs using life planning and understand their goals by establishing communication. He comments on the way some planners question their clients on what age do they plan to retire.
