Will I Retire Fast?
With all of the unpleasant news about the underfunding of Social Security and companies cutting pension plans to save money, you may have started to ask yourself "Will I retire?" What used to seem guaranteed - you work hard, you save and invest wisely, then you ease into a relaxing retirement - no longer seems certain for most people.
And 'will I retire?' is only one question in the series that also includes, 'Will I retire with enough money to pay my bills,' 'will I retire and be able to do all of the things that I'd hoped to do - travel, have quality time with my family'- and 'will I retire only to find out that I need to go back to work to be able to make ends meet?'
These questions can be unsettling. We don't always trust ourselves to be sure that we've done all that we can to plan for our future. We don't always believe that the investments we've made are going to perform the way that we need them too.
And there's worse news still. We don't always trust our financial advisors to be concerned with financial interests other than our own. We don't always understand the way the government decides when to change interest rates or how much to change them. We don't always know how to predict inflation and other cost of living increases.
