Here's this week's Podcast Topic:
For some people retirement is a result of planning, sacrifice, and perhaps a bit of luck. For others, it is a dream that may never be realized, at least not the way they had envisioned it in their 40's or 50's.
There are research reports that indicate that almost 60% of people approaching retirement fear that they have not saved enough, and that over half of all future retirees will face a shortfall of 10% in the amount they will need to maintain their current lifestyles.
Anyone counting on Social Security to cover the cost of retirement is in for a shock as the average Social Security check being received in America is just under $1200. And unless you've been avoiding the news, you know that Social Security is projected to be unable to meet its total obligations in about another 20-years.
Join me for my podcast, "The Hope of Retirement - Myth or Reality" and I'll share some of the research results and outlook that too many boomers are currently facing.
The solution to the problem isn't easy, as it requires planning, discipline, saving and a willingness to forego immediate gratification. But the truth is, that unless more people start thinking longer term, the future for far too many will be at best, challenging. The time to plan is now, and I can promise you that doing so is very worthwhile.
