Plan now on ways to take care of yourself through a long retirement

It is no surprise to us that people would want to retire in Florida.

A report by financial website WalletHub released on Jan. 14 ranks the state as the best place to retire in terms of affordability, health-related factors and overall quality of life. According to the U.S. Census’ 2017 Population Estimates Program, close to a half-million Miami-Dade County residents are over the age of 65, and by 2040, 1 in 5 Americans will be over the age of 65, according to the annual report produced by the Administration for Community Living. Advances in medicine are leading the way to longevity, but various improvements in diet and lifestyle have also helped.

Since we are all looking forward to longer and more productive lives, the importance of maintaining your lifestyle through retirement has become more pronounced and is an essential part of any financial plan.
