Retirement Planning for One

Much has been written about estate planning for married couples entering their retirement years, but single people need retirement planning just as much if not more. Currently, 55 percent of women over the age of 65 are singles and 25 percent of men are, too. Planning for retirement as a single person is important to ensure there is a financial safety net available throughout your retirement.

Here are some retirement planning recommendations for singles:

Build a support system – if you have been single for a long time, you probably already have a good support system. But for newly single retirees, it is important to build a support system for your later years. This support system should include not only social support, but also legal and financial support from a financial advisor and estate planning attorney.

Health care planning – baby boomers are the first generation that will share a retirement with their parents. New retirees with living parents should discuss the expectations those parents have of you so you can plan accordingly. You will also need to plan for your own long term health care needs, and can discuss the many options with a qualified Fort Myers estate planning lawyer.

Housing – even if you have lived on your own for many years, you may want to investigate communal living arrangements as you age. Adult living communities are full of active seniors who have given up shoveling snow and mowing yards for golf, fitness and spa treatments.
