Nearing Retirement and Worried

I don’t think I’m alone in the search for answers to retirement questions.

For this reason, I’ve decided to try my hand at building a blog to share what I’ve discovered in the hope that I might be able to help others find their way.  I look at this site (www.NearingRetirement.com) as a, hopefully, valuable source of information set in a community environment where everyone can share their ideas and experiences.

The target audience for this website are people that are nearing retirement, say in 5-10 years or so, and are worried that they will not have enough …

  • Savings for a comfortable retirement (nearly half of workers over age 50 have less than $25,000 in savings and investments – 2014 EBRI Retirement Confidence Survey)
  • Healthcare to cover medical costs (a 65 year old couple retiring this year will need $240,000 to cover future medical costs – Fidelity Investments)
  • Things to do in retirement (many retirees find themselves bored out of their minds after leaving their jobs)
  • Friends to share the journey and together find answers to a happy retirement (my hope is that this site will create many friendships among its members)

So, are you nearing retirement and looking for answers?  If so, pull up a seat, get comfortable, look around and interact.  Tell us your story and, together, let’s find a happy start to our journey!

To your retirement success,

Steve
