Smurf Hunter:
If this is not a personal survival topic, I'm not sure what is...


--- Quote ---People are living longer, more expensive lives, often without much of a safety net. As a result, record numbers of Americans older than 65 are working — now nearly 1 in 5. That proportion has risen steadily over the past decade, and at a far faster rate than any other age group. Today, 9 million senior citizens work, compared with 4 million in 2000.

 In that case, don't work too hard

Actually... I find work pretty fulfilling and plan to do some type of work probably forever.

I will technically retire in about 15 years, but I'm working on setting a side business or businesses that will allow me some additional cash flow when I do.  If I get them set up and they pay more than I'm making at my job, then I'm fine with that too, but for now, I'm looking at them for supplemental income now and when I retire.

Sobering article.

If that doesn’t scare you into saving early and often for retirement, I don’t know what will.  Nobody is coming to the rescue.
