Americans’ Top Three Retirement Fears
Americans are most afraid of their money running out before their life runs out, and almost equally afraid that while they are alive, they won’t have the funds to enjoy their life and cover basic necessities.
Running out of lifetime income
Maintaining their current lifestyle
Covering healthcare expenses
“As Americans are living longer, it’s no surprise the number one retirement fear is that their savings will run out, leaving them broke in their final years. The uncertainty of knowing if your retirement funds are enough to cover your entire life can be crippling. However, there are steps to create peace of mind, including establishing balance in your portfolio and paying yourself first by looking into retirement products, like fixed indexed annuities that offer a stream of guaranteed lifetime income.”
Executive Director of the Indexed Annuity Leadership Council (IALC).
However, Americans aren’t taking the necessary steps to address their concerns and mitigate the risks.
