Founder of The Elder & Disability Law Firm, Victoria L. Collier, on Retirement Fears
Certified Elder Care Attorney, Victoria Collier, highlights the four greatest fears retirees face today and in the future citing starting to save for retirement as early as possible as the best solution for overcoming the fear.
Decatur, GA, February 6, 2017: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Elder & Disability Law Firm, has posted a new blog on her law firm’s website entitled “The Greatest Financial Fears of Most Retirees,” in which Ms. Collier acknowledges that the fears are well founded.
Collier writes, “Retiring has almost always been looked forward to as the “golden years.” A time to relax and do the things you love to do after having worked hard for 30 or more years.” “However,” she adds, “in light of the 2008 real estate debacle, which devastated the retirement funds and lives of many and the uncertainty that faces the country with the new administration, retirement is no longer perceived as ‘golden’.”
Collier elaborates, “Not only do those who are nearing retirement age have worries, even the millennial group and beyond have much to think about.”
Collier states, “The greatest fear of most people nearing retirement age is that will run out of money.” She continues adding, “According to a recent survey conducted by Transamerica Corporation, 51% of respondents said their greatest retirement fear was outliving their savings. That was an increase from 44% in the previous year.”
