Money and growing older


October 16, 2006 in 

For many, there is a financial need to continue working after hitting the 60’s. For others, there is a desire to keep working until we are no longer able to do so….. One nice thing about aging is that we hopefully learn to work smarter and not harder.

We are living longer and maintaining our health as we age…and for some, we are getting healthier as we grow older better I am in much better physical shape than I was when in my 50’s. , Maybe even better than when in my 40’s.

So – do we keep working or not? It’s an individual choice – and depends on how much “better” you want to grow older : ). Full retirement with sufficient funds so that there is absolutely no stress related to money is great. But with increasing costs of everything – it’s wise to not totally count on what you now have if you are retired.

I complain about corporations here:
but I will say here that they scare me. All they want is the moolah and the hell with the people. Yes I know this is not true of all corporations but too many have hurt us – like the pharmaceuticals, the energy ones, the oil people, etc. Their goal is to increase their own net incomes and those of their shareholders- they do not care about who might get hurt. [The Medicare part D doughnut hole is a good example.]

Over the next bunch of postings – I am going to look at working and aging.
