Are You Ready?
Hopes for an economic upswing may rekindle ideas of a blissful retirement, but when will you really be ready? Nearly a third of working people aged 55 or older have less than $10,000 saved for retirement, according to a 2009 Retirement Confidence Survey. But even if you’re saved more than that, deciding when to retire has gotten more tricky. Our financial futures are uncertain, 65 is no longer the default retirement age and it can be difficult to determine how much you’ll need in order to really enjoy retirement (or in the very least live comfortably). So if you’re approaching your twilight years, here are some signs that you might not be ready to retire just yet. Photo Credit: bravenewtraveler
