  • When you think about where to retire, what’s at the top of your “must-have” list? Maybe you’re picturing an opportunity to connect with neighbors of all ages? A calendar of activities from classes on music production to playing pickleball (natch). And, of course, having access to top-notch healthcare.

    A growing number of retirees are finding all that and more at “University Retirement Communities,” a network of senior living facilities scattered across the country that are associated with a university or college. Experts say by heading back to campus, seniors are living longer, healthier lives, thanks in large part to “intergenerational living,” which they say is key to a rich life as we age. And let’s not forget that strong relationships are really what keep us living healthier, happier, and longer according to the longest running study on happiness and adult development.

  • “What’s love got to do with it?,” Tina Turner famously asked. She probably wasn’t talking about money at the time — but if she was, the answer would be “a lot,” especially as we age.

    According to a recent survey, the number one source of discord in couples is arguments over money. The occasional spat may be glossed over, but the more they happen the more likely they are to lead to divorce — which is increasingly common among older Americans. Since 1990, the divorce rate for people 45+ has gone up according to research from Bowling Green University while the rate for younger couples has fallen. More striking — and spurring talk of the phenomenon is known as “gray divorce” — the rate among those over 65 tripled from 1990 to 2001. Whether you’ve been married for decades or have partnered up later in life, are there ways to manage your relationship–and your money–to achieve harmony in both areas?

  • America has entered the “Peak 65 Zone”, a huge moment when more Americans will turn the traditional retirement age of 65 than at any time in our country’s history. So, what’s it like crossing into the “Peak 65 Zone?” When you talk to real-life consumers, they’ll share a range of emotions…everything from excitement about the freedom of their retirement years to fear over making sure their money lasts as long as they do. For many, it’s a combination of both, along with many other feelings that characterize retirement and the years leading up to it.

  • 2024 is officially here…and so is what’s known as the “Peak 65 Zone.” This year, we will see the largest surge of retiring Americans in recent history, with more than 4.1 million people turning 65 each year through 2027.
