Healthcare Costs in Retirement…Often Overlooked in the Planning Process

Predicting cash needs in retirement is a daunting task. It often focuses on day-to-day living expenses (e.g., housing, food clothing, travel, etc.) compared to expected income streams (e.g., Social Security, interest on savings, retirement account withdrawals, etc.).

Her article notes, as an example, a recent study by Employee Benefit Research Institute suggesting that a senior couple with high prescription drug needs could require as much as $413,000, and offers commentary on options that should be considered to mitigate large expenditures like this.
