Folks love to think about retirement: travel to exotic places; golfing during the week; seeing the grandkids whenever you like; leaving the office behind.
But what about AFTER retirement? For most of us, there’s a period when we can no longer maintain an active lifestyle. Age and illness eventually catch up with us, and we can’t play tennis or jump on a plane at a moment’s notice. We often require help from others to get around. Healthcare needs can escalate dramatically.
Have you considered who you might call upon for help? What resources you might draw upon for the expenses? Where you might have to go to meet those needs?
These are questions that are tough to ask. But raising them while you’re healthy can save you and your family a great deal of anguish and money.
If you’ve ever thought “I don’t want to be a burden to my kids,” NOW is the time to act on it.
