Someone turning age 65 today has almost a 70% chance of needing some type of long-term care services.
Imagine working your entire life with a plan to retire hen you hit 65, only to declare bankruptcy due to medical costs, then losing all of your assets.
This isn’t some unlikely nightmare scenario; the rate of senior citizens declaring bankruptcy has more than doubled since 1999, and the leading cause is high healthcare costs. Despite the existence of Medicare insurance for seniors, it doesn’t cover all costs and healthcare can be extremely expensive, especially as you age.
Planning for healthcare related costs are a neccessity. Peak Trust Financial Group is there to help.
In case you have not done so already, max out all your eligable tax-deferred retirement savings plans (IRAs, 401ks, etc).
Check on the standard annual maximum contributions based on yoour age. If you are over 50 you can supercharge your account by adding $6,000 more. This also applies to your IRAs. The standard maximum is an extra $1,000 a year for this financial instrument as well.
Start here first, then make sure you check back every fall; the annual contribution limits are set by the government and adjusted for inflation each year.
Once you have stuffed your tax-deferred accounts to their annual limits, consider adding a Health Savings Account (HSA), life insurance and long-term care insurance to your investing lineup.Need help with making your decision? We can help.
