Retirement can be a relaxing and satisfying stage of life, though it may come with some challenges. The greatest challenge many face, is planning for their financial futures. Health care can be one of the greatest expenses for retirees- and those costs are continuously growing.
Did you know that traditional retirement age is 65? Did you also know that at age 65 you become eligible for Medicare?
Turning 65 is no guarantee that you will be ready to retire. In fact, a rapidly growing number of older Americans are continuing to work past age 65. According to the U.S. Jobs report released in April 2018, 32% of Americans age 65 to 69 were employed last quarter. Even past age 70, a growing number of seniors are either declining or unable to retire. With the numbers increasing every year, this looks to be a continuing trend.

From the time our children or grandchildren are born, we only want the best for them. When we give ourselves time to daydream about their futures, what does that look like beyond first words and steps? Beyond the first day of school and then graduation? College? Often times while we are thinking about their future, we aren’t necessarily thinking about how we could be investing in their financial future. I can tell you from personal experience that we always think we will have time to plan for these big events, but they seem to happen in the blink of an eye.
