“Retirement life” is music to the ears. But the process for planning for it can be devoid of harmony without practical financial money-saving strategies behind every move.
Today, Americans are generally enjoying added time away from work even though on average they retire at 66, which is up slightly from the 1990s’ retirement average.
Two staggering statistics among the nearly 50 million Americans over the age of 65 underscores the importance of early planning. Their average income is below $40,000 and their net worth is also too low for comfort. According to the U.S. Census, the average net worth of a retiree is about $170,000. With that kind of income and net worth, retirement planning and living can be financially challenging, especially after an unprecedented pandemic.
