Living in Retirement

One of the things to consider when you plan on living in retirement for the rest of your life, is what are your means of support financially.  Besides your own savings in the bank or from your IRA or 401K, where else do you plan on getting the money that you’ll need while you’re living out your golden years in retirement?

Social Security retirement benefits are the largest source of retirement income for people over 65.  Every employee contributes to Social Security while they are working.  The contribution is automatically deducted from the worker’s paychecks, and is matched by the employer, deposited into a fund, and managed by the government.  The fund pays retirement benefits and also survivor and disability benefits.  How much you get depends on how much you put in.

Senior Retirement Living

The notion of Senior Retirement Living is often meant to describe retirement communities occupied by those aged 60 and over.  These senior retirement options are no longer just destinations for those seniors looking to slow down. In fact, many of the current trends suggest the opposite to be true.  More than 77 million baby boomers will reach retirement age in the next 20 years, and people are heading to senior communities with outdoor clubs more typical of the college campus than the traditional senior retirement living community. People over 60 are also choosing to move earlier than ever to senior communities for security, personal safety, transportation, services, and to be closer to peers who share their passion for life.
