Worried you don’t have enough to retire? Consider working a little longer
Abstract: A recent study confirms what financial advisors have been saying for years: People who extend their work life — even for a short time — can enjoy a lot more retirement income. This article explains why and discusses other benefits of working longer such as maximizing Social Security benefits and reducing health care costs. A sidebar examines whether retirees should follow the “4% rule” when withdrawing from retirement savings.
