5 Reasons to Retire as Early as You Can
With so many articles stating to delay Social Security and to work as long as possible, Selena Maranjian’s piece here from The Motley Fool provides a different viewpoint. For those who have saved fairly diligently, early retirement is possible. She dives into five key points: One: Putting off retirement can be risky, as our lifespans are not known; Two: You hate your job, as that can create health problems; Three: You can be very productive in your retirement years, as in part-time work may be enough to cover the basics; Four: You can avoid running out of money with annuities; Five: It’s not worth delaying Social Security, which is especially true if taking benefits early allows you to stay vested in the stock market and grow that source of funds.
