retirement alone income

I’m Miriam  Neff-with STARTING OVER FINANCIALLY,-and I’m Valerie Neff Hogan, and we’re here to talk about money


M   Are you finding yourself entering retirement unexpectedly alone?  Maybe you are widowed or divorced?  What if you were not the one managing the finances?  What do you do now?


V  Step one is understand where your sources of income will come from.  Will you get Social Security? If so, how much?  What about a teacher retirement?  Or a pension?  You can get a statement of projected payments on each of those.

What about retirement savings accounts?  Will you have those funds to draw from? Any other sources like part time work, or rental income?


M  Scripture says provide for our own, which means ourselves.  First know how much income and what resources you have.
