#HowImFundingMyRetirement via Hashtag, You’re It!: @McMannofthePeop The Top Picks


When looking towards the future no one wants to think of negative things that that will bring. We just want to picture ourselves sitting in a rocking chair on a porch just watching the sun set. Not a care in the world, just sitting and getting older. The reality of it is who’s paying for that rocking chair? Who’s paying for that porch your sitting on? Who’s paying for that really big Monday thru Sunday pill box that you have to eat about 5 pounds of pills a day to keep you alive? YOU ARE, that’s who! As of 2016, the average cost of retirement is $828,000. Of course that is if you retire at the age of 65. But that’s not some pocket change we all have laying around. Retirement takes careful planning starting about the time we get out of college. But wait, don’t we all have a huge amount of college debt that we have to pay down first? Crap! Ok, ok, ok, we’ll pay off our college debt THEN get doing on saving for retirement. There are no other large financial obligations thru the rest of our lives that we have to deal with like buying a car, or a house, or having kids, or any sort of medical bills, or you know buying food right? Wow, the more and more you look at it the baby boomers REALLY had it easy. Also they are projected to be the last generation that actually has any sort of retirement savings planned. Now I have a few more decades before I get to retire so hopefully I will be able to put away SOME sort of money *fingers crossed*. But it looks more and more likely that I will be working until I drop. With any luck I’ll keel over AT work so my significant other will get some money out of it. Like so many of our now a days there is little to no savings planned for the latter part of our lives so for this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” I asked you guys how you are going to be dealing with that with the hashtag #HowImFundingMyRetirement and to tell you the truth, reading thru the over 1200 answers, it’s not looking good for ANY of us. So check out the top list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT for the next exciting episode of “HAshtag, You’re It”
