The world faces the most serious crisis in most of our lifetimes, and people are dying. What does this blog’s theme of frugality, investing, and financial independence have to do with a pandemic? Are we being frivolous, uncaring, or irresponsible to focus on money while thousands of people are losing their lives in a health […] The post What Does Financial Independence Have to Do With Surviving a Pandemic? appeared first ...

It seems like the world is changing daily in front of our eyes. Several articles that I bookmarked to share earlier this month already felt dated and irrelevant in our current environment. We managed to collect a variety of articles that are both timely and timeless to help you invest through the uncertainty of this […] The post March 2020 Best of the Web appeared first on Can I Retire Yet?. ...

I stepped outside under a deep blue sky. The sun shone bright. It was a perfect day. Yet nothing felt right. In less than 24 hours between Wednesday, March 11th and Thursday, March 12th: The stock market continued to crash, marking the fastest ever drop from market top to bear market. The president addressed the […] The post Making Sense Out of Chaos appeared first on Can I Retire Yet?. ...

I’m sitting down to write this post at 8:30 in the morning on Monday March 2, 2020. The previous week that ended February 28th was the worst week for the stock markets since the 2008 financial crisis, spurred in large part by fears over the Coronavirus. I normally don’t pay much attention to what the […] The post Coronavirus, Market Volatility, and “Buying the Dip” appeared first on Can I Retire ...

This is a milestone year. The girl I married in her 20’s, is now a “senior citizen.” Though she doesn’t look like one. And I’m close on her heels. (Though I am starting to feel like one, at least on certain days!) With Caroline turning 62 this year, along with other adjustments to becoming “seniors,” […] The post When to Take Social Security appeared first on Can I Retire Yet?. ...

We have a great collection of content to share with you this month. We start by continuing the conversation on topics we just wrote about this month: the challenge of keeping health care costs affordable and better understanding annuities. We also return to some older ideas that we’ve explored on the blog before: the challenge […] The post February 2020 Best of the Web appeared first on Can I Retire Yet?. ...

For years, health insurance in the U.S. was a major roadblock to early retirement. If you dared to leave work before age 65, when Medicare starts, you were on your own for retirement health care. In my case, our assets were closing in on financial independence as I reached my mid-40’s. But pre-existing conditions precluded […] The post Retirement Healthcare: What Are Your Options? appeared first on Can I Retire Yet?. ...

You’ll notice some changes here this week. The blog has a totally new look and structure, which has been under construction for months. We were long overdue for a refreshed design. There have been no significant visual changes here since I first cobbled together the site with my rudimentary graphical skills in late 2011. With […] The post The Pralana Gold 2020 Retirement Calculator appeared first on Can I Retire Yet?. ...

The word annuity is oddly polarizing. Last August, I shared an article highlighting esteemed retirement researcher Wade Pfau’s assertion that annuities are better than bonds for guaranteed income. A reader, Phillip, commented: “I believe that annuities are an investment product that is sold to people and not bought by people. Unsophisticated people buy these…” In ...
