Hope For Retirement
We put in years of hard work, in hopes of one day reaching retirement. But in today’s world, not everyone is confident they’ll be financially secure to retire. For some, they feel the only option is to keep working. In a 2021 Gallup poll, many workers plan to retire at 64 years old, compared to 60 years old back in 1995. But, perhaps you can relocate somewhere that is more affordable.
