    Bad News - People Are Living Longer!

  • Today's life expectancy is approaching 80 and continuing to rise, it is no secret that modern medicine technology, diet, and exercise have done a remarkable job of keeping people living longer.

    Now when someone retires, they might have 20 or 30 years of life in front of them. It is also a known fact that that women live longer than men. This is going to have a huge impact on how much money people need to live with security and comfort throughout their years.

    Today there are 78 million baby boomers and 10,000 baby boomers are turning 65 each day, and that will continue for the next 18 years.

    A big problem exists in regard to money. As people age, the cost of keeping them alive rises with them, people need a plan. People need to know hot they're going to pay for living so long, and they need to know who's going to foot the bill.

    The number one concern of baby boomers is not dieing, it is outliving their money.

    Also, there is a movement among the aging, of not stepping away from work entirely. They're going to continue to do some type of work to keep their body and mind active, well into what would be considered THEIR RETIREMENT YEARS.
