  • The U.S. population is growing older and the number of retirees is increasing. Since 2011, on average, 10,000 Baby Boomers have been turning age 65 every day and they will continue to do so through 2029. In its most recent survey of those ages 18 and older, nonprofit Transamerica Institute found that almost one in four individuals are now fully retired.
  • Retirement is a time in life when people transition out of the workforce with more free time to enjoy life. But, when we do so, we are leaving our paychecks behind.

  • If you took a poll asking folks if they could cease indulging their unhealthy habits, I suspect the response would be largely in favor, but the question is: How?
  • Do you have a grasp of retirement investing? Do you understand the terminology? If you do, then you are among the relatively few. A recent survey from nonprofit Transamerica Institute found that almost two-thirds of U.S. workers say they do not know as much as they should about retirement investing.
