For those of you who may not know, we have to do a certain amount of continuing education each year to maintain our professional financial designations.
This week, Marion attended a continuing education course on retirement planning- something we are EXTREMELY familiar with.
However, she did take away from the course a few interesting retirement-related statistics that opened our eyes to the general population in the U.S.
Did you know?:
- 72% of Americans are concerned about running out of money in retirement
- 57% are overwhelmed by having to determine how much they can spend in retirement
- Only 48% of Americans have attempted to calculate how much money they spend
- 60% are worried about not getting a regular paycheck in retirement
During this week’s episode of Dollars & Sense, we discuss how you can ease your retirement fears.
You’ve worked hard, saved, raised a family and did everything you’re supposed to do. Your retirement should be a time in your life that you look forward to, not worry about! If you are concerned about your retirement plan, please give us a call.
