Retirement isn’t something most of us think about, until it’s too late.
And a new survey shows, many Americans are worried.
What it comes down to is the old definition of retirement is changing.
We all have different pictures in our minds about retirement.
Sometimes, it involves taking it easy, a round of gold or tennis, or just socializing with our friends.
But, that takes money.
And a new survey by the folks at Wells Fargo shows, most of us don’t think we’ll have enough.
So, 80% of the folks they surveyed thought, they’d just have to keep working.
Some people who had been responsible, simply got caught in the recession.
And then there’s the chance we may simply outlive our money.
And though they’ll figure out a fix for social Security, it was never meant to be the whole ball game.
And all those bulletproof 28-year-olds that some of us work with?
It sounds dull, and uncreative, but the secret is simple, dogged savings.
Well, it is dull and uncreative, but it will keep you out of an orange vest.
