11 numbers that will terrify you into saving for retirement

  11 numbers that will terrify you into saving for retirement It can be tough to save for retirement when it is still decades away. It’s apparently even tough for older workers who are on the verge of retirement. Living expenses can eat up paychecks, and saving takes a back burner to spending. But it leads to the quintessential fear of what having no money in our older years looks like: the elderly parent who must move in with an adult child, having to chose between food and prescription drugs because only one can be afforded.

"We really want to help our residents do things that are exciting and new and mean something to them," said Niki Mills, the general manager of Seasons Royal Oak Village.
