When you are going through your prime earning years you have a window of opportunity that you can either take advantage of or ignore. You must assume personal responsibility for your own future, and if you do not act with that future in mind along the way you may regret it later on.
Retirement planning is important, and you cannot correct errors of omission as a senior citizen in most cases because you simply don’t have the time to recover.
On the other hand, if you understand the facts, evaluate your anticipated future expenses, and conduct yourself within an intelligently conceived financial framework you should be secure during your senior years.
When it comes to budgeting for the latter portion of your life you would do well to understand the fact that a high percentage of seniors ultimately reside in nursing homes, and this care is very expensive.
Medicare does not pay for long-term care, and when we say “very expensive” we are talking about over $100,000 for a year in a nursing home in the state of New York.
Many people would like to be able to leave something behind to their loved ones as well, and this is another thing to take into consideration when you are looking at the big picture.
