I thought I’d saved enough for retirement, but my investments are not drawing the interest I expected. And to add insult to injury, I recently became disabled, making it impossible for me to return to work.

We feel pretty good about retirement. We both receive pensions and have private funds invested in the stock market. We also have CDs and a money market account, and we have no debt. We pay our credit cards off each month. So, we feel pretty confident about our money lasting. The one variable is health insurance. We pay for policies through my husband’s former employer’s plan, and we will be under Medicare in two more years. We don’t know how Medicare is going to change, though.
