What’s Missing From Your Retirement Portfolio?

What Is the Biggest Retirement Planning Mistake?

Retirement Planning Mistake

Perhaps, you have a pension, 401K, IRA, Roth, Social Security Insurance, and Medicare benefits. While in past retirements this was enough today there is a new threat to your retirement. Now, many older adults as they enter their 80s are facing a lack of transportation benefits in their retirement portfolio.

 

Plan For a Long Life

If you have planned for a long life then you must include a transportation for older age. Research tells us many Americans will outlive their ability to drive by a decade. Often during the last decade of life, many individuals will be unable to drive. By including transportation in your retirement portfolio you can maintain your freedom and mobility during retirement.

Personalized Transportation System

When I wrote Freewheeling After Sixty it was with an aging driver in mind. Someone similar to me who knows life is complex with more than one solution to a problem. This is the heart of the Freewheeling Personalized Transportation Plan.

  1. Create awareness about the problem
  2. Identify your transportation needs 
  3. Develop a plan to keep you connected to the lifestyle you choose

Retirement Planning or Asset Review

Now the next time you review your retirement plans consider your transportation needs. By taking action now you can improve your quality of life and enhance your well-being later in life.
