The reality is many Americans – about 50 percent – aren’t prepared for retirement. If you don’t have enough saved up for your golden years, there is one way to catch up relatively quickly. Work a little longer. We know, we know, it’s not ideal. But, it can make a huge difference. Here’s how:
- You aren’t spending down your savings. In fact, you’re probably continuing to save. This can make a big difference – even if you work just a couple more months.
- You’re delaying Social Security payments. This is the most important aspect. The longer you wait to take Social Security, the higher the payouts. One study by the National Bureau of Economic Research even found that working just one year more (in their case, retiring at age 67) can increase a couple’s standard of living in retirement by almost 10%. They say good comes to those who wait…so what’s one more year of working?1
