The Top 12 Dividend Stocks
If you don’t get that question a lot now, chances are it will occur more and more frequently as you approach that age.
The thing about retirement is you never know how long it will last.
The good news is that you could live a lot longer than expected. The bad news? You may not have financially planned as well as you think.
This means you could run out of money in retirement.
There are a lot of factors that determine how long you’ll need your money to last… Two big determinants are your physical health and when you officially
leave the workforce.
Let’s say you retire at 65 and live until you’re 92. That means you’ll have to fund 27 years of retirement.
Think about that for a second… 27 years without a paycheck.
Let’s Do a Little Experiment
How much do you think it will or has cost you to live from age 38 to 65? Granted, there are some costs that go away with time, but others take their place.
For example, the average 65-year-old retired couple probably doesn’t have to support their kids anymore, but what if they expect $300,000 in healthcare costs?
That’s just over $8,000 per year for 27 years.
And according to the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances, people between the ages of 55 and 64 have an average of less than $140,000 saved.
That means the average person is about $160,000 short of covering just their healthcare costs.
So how will these people make up the difference? Before you go into a panic, there is a solution.
