KANSAS CITY, Mo. – 2020 has been a tough year for nearly everyone, and that may be especially true for retirees and those nearing retirement who suddenly are worried about whether their careful planning and years of saving could be upended by events beyond their control.
After all, retirement is supposed to be a time when you kick back and enjoy the fruits of all those decades of labor, according to Alan Becker is president and CEO of Retirement Solutions Group and author of “Return on Investment or Reliability of Income? The True Meaning of ROI in Retirement.”
That’s difficult to do if you’re jittery about a volatile stock market or you fret over every expenditure because you aren’t sure whether your savings can go the distance in a lengthy retirement, he said.
