Million-Dollar Poverty

In past generations, having a million dollars meant a lifetime of luxury.

For the past several decades, it was the standard threshold guaranteeing a comfortable retirement.

But today? It's only a fraction of the money you'll need to save up in order to retire.

From CNBC:

Peak Prosperity Elders

Some members of the Peak Prosperity community, in or near their “senior” years, may share a slightly different outlook, as well as alternative plans and goals relative to preparing for the future from other members of the community. Future planning may have a shorter time range, and goals may address having resources to access services like medical and long term care as increasing age takes its toll on health and independence.
