What are your plans for your fifties? Sixties? Seventies???
I am faced with being in my fourties. Unemployed, so currently a stay at home mom. No retirement. Not much social security coming. As my health is declining and we are dealing with family issues, my husband is urging me to stay home. That was NOT our plan financially.
As I sit here and contemplate his mothers issues with little income, low social security, no retirement, no health insurance and a hubby who only makes 1000 a month. She is getting to the age she can no longer work (she babysits) and her hubby will not be able to retire as his health declines...I look at them and do not want that for myself. I do not want my kids to have to worry about if mom and dad can pay their bills. I know it is part of their responsibility, but I want to be proactive and do it myself.
What are your thoughts? Will you share your plans?
