I thought this USA Today article was interesting. It reviews a study that shows retirees are less satisfied today than they were in the past (1998-2012).
A few key takeaways:
- 95% of retirees prefer to spend their money on experiences instead of things.
- Money isn’t everything, but retirees with more money reported having more satisfaction in retirement.
- Health is important: 80% of healthy retirees reported being “Very Satisfied” while only 25.6% of those in poor health gave the same response.
