Talking about being able to breathe
And not suffocating in old age
Just look at the risks
Facing those that retire
Whether it’s at age 55, 65, or 70
Wenliang Hou, an economist
At the Center for Retirement Research of Boston College
Identified the risks of a typical retiree:
■ How long will a retiree live?
A lot of this projection has to do
Whether an individual dies at a younger age,
Or lives to be quite old by outliving the retirement funds
■ How are the markets doing?
A great deal depends on if the returns
Of the stock market on the investments are strong or weak
■ What is the nature of a retiree’s health?
An individual’s health can be a tricky business
No one knows if a retiree will enjoy good health
Or if he or she will be dogged with chronic health problems
■ What are the challenges faced by families?
Some families throughout their lives are economically independent.
While a few might suffer the death of a spouse
And others unforeseen circumstances that are problematic
■ Would there be policy risks?
Imagine if there are cuts to Social Security benefits
Or if the family insurance company is bankrupt
