How national debt affects retirement savings
The national debt is a growing concern for many Americans, especially those planning for retirement. In this Tuesday weekly webinar, host Mark Byelich discusses the potential impact of the national debt on retirement planning and offers practical strategies for managing risk and ensuring financial security.
What is the National Debt?
- Explanation of the national debt as the total amount of money owed by the federal government
- Steady increase in recent years and historic levels reached in 2023
- Ongoing COVID-19 pandemic exacerbating the situation
Risks and Potential Impacts
- Potential changes to Social Security benefits due to funding pressures
- Potential tax increases and inflation affecting retirees’ income and savings
Managing Risk: Strategies for Retirement Planning
- Diversifying retirement savings across different types of investments (stocks, bonds, real estate) to reduce exposure to risk
- Considering alternative sources of retirement income (annuities, rental property) to ensure a steady stream of income regardless of potential changes to Social Security or other retirement benefits
- Staying informed and adjusting retirement planning as needed
The national debt is a significant concern for retirement planning, but it’s important to understand the potential risks and take steps to manage them. While changes to Social Security and tax increases are possible, diversifying your investments and exploring alternative sources of income can help reduce your exposure to risk and ensure financial security. By staying informed and adjusting your retirement planning as needed, you can help ensure a comfortable retirement even in the face of potential economic challenges.
