Retirement In Sight for January 2019

Think of these factors AS YOU think about retirement income
If retirement is drawing closer, you will want to ask yourself some key questions relating to your future income. Answering these fundamental questions may help to give you a better picture of the monthly cash flow needs of your retiree household.
The first two questions concern time. One, when do you anticipate retiring; two, how long do you suppose your retirement might last? The earlier you retire, the longer your retirement might be – and the more money it might require. Concluding your career before age 62 means living without Social Security income for a spell. Leaving work before age 65 means living without Medicare for a period of months or years. The other two questions have to do with accumulation and distribution of assets. What might your monthly household budget be in retirement? Even a ballpark version could lead to an understanding of the income your lifestyle might require. (Keep in mind that the first phase of retirement might demand more money than you think, as travel and opportunities to live the “good life” beckon to you.) Lastly, how do you stand in terms of your savings? Are you on track to accumulate enough assets to create adequate retirement income? By double-checking your progress a few years before your “second act” begins, you can see if you need to save more or work longer. These questions are central to estimating retirement income needs.1
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
While about 10,000 baby boomers are retiring per day, employers have been readily hiring the ones who want to keep working. In 2018, Americans 55 and older filled 1.4 million of the 2.9 million new jobs recorded by the Department of Labor’s regular survey of households, even though they constituted just a quarter of those either working or looking for work.4
