With spooky decorations in doorways and a smell of leaves in the air, this time of year is all about apple cider and trick-or-treating. It gets me thinking about scary things that keep people up at night. For most people I know, that fear is outliving their retirement nest egg.
If you are concerned that your savings might run out leaving you broke, you are not alone. In fact, studies show that outliving their money is the #1 fear among those at or near retirement.
That makes perfect sense! At the end of the day, we are most afraid of the unknown. While it is easy to budget for routine expenses like food, entertainment and travel; life expectancy and health care expenses are completely unpredictable. No matter how disciplined you are with your budget, it is tough to know whether you have saved enough just by looking at a bank account balance. With the costs of health care on the rise, a single injury or unexpected diagnosis can wipe out a lifetime of savings in just a few short months.
Having worked with hundreds of individuals like you, I understand what it is like to lay awake at night worrying about money. That anxiety may be well-justified. The good news is that retirement fears can be overcome with proper planning.
