How Has Retirement Changed?
And what can you do to make sure yours is successful?
Today’s retirees faces a very different world than their parents and grandparents. You may feel like you’re tired of the rat race, and you’re ready to kick back and enjoy life.
But are you absolutely certain that you can afford to quit working?
According to the Social Security Administration, a 65-year-old man can expect to live another 18 years, on average. A 65-year-old woman can expect to live another 20 years, on average.
Sadly, many Americans realize too late that their savings, along with Social Security, are not enough to maintain a balanced, enjoyable lifestyle in retirement. Compounding the problem, many people find it difficult to re-enter the workforce after several years in retirement - even if they realize they need more money to pay basic living expenses!
But you control your financial decisions. There are some simple steps you can take before retirement to be sure you can live the life you envision.
This was my motivation for writing this book: To give you the hope and inspiration you need to get your financial life in order before it’s too late!
