“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.” (Jim Rohn)
Regardless of your age, profession or income level you should be planning NOW. Statistics show that most people are either not giving retirement enough attention or planning properly for it. In a recent annual survey of Baby boomer retirement expectations by the Insured Retirement Institute (IRI), they found that 45% of boomers have zero savings for their golden years. In addition, many boomers are significantly underestimating the amount of annual retirement income needed to support their health and long–term care costs which may not be subsidized by Medicare. Relying solely on Social Security can be a gamble since we do not know if that money will be available.
