Retiring at 43?! #FIRE

I read a fascinating article by Steven Kurutz in the New York Times recently, it’s titled, “Retire at 43. You’re on FIRE.”

It talks about people who have made the conscious decision to live very frugally. They save a giant percentage of their incomes so they can retire at really young ages. Not 57 early retirement, but 43 or younger!

It is alleged that they lost that money in a scheme perpetrated by a company called Private Income Payments which would buy pensions and sell the rights to the payments to investors in a little known, and to be …

The Powerful Positive Financial Impact Of Delaying Retirement

By Eve Kaplan, CFP® Practitioner

New data show the powerful positive financial impact of delaying retirement by even just a few months. Postponing retirement even by a month – for some – can equal or exceed the positive impact of saving more each year for 10 years while working. This is great news especially for people approaching retirement who are worried about insufficient savings and who might be thinking that it’s  “too late” to shore up their retirement.

As an advisor, I’m always looking for ways for clients to improve their retirement prospects. We’ll all living longer lives and the …
