Many people would continue working if they could but for many reasons aren't able to as they age. A lot of being able to retire comfortably is Luck!--- along with the good fortune of staying healthy....and having family members who are healthy.

What I've learned: Nothing is for sure. Making plans, saving and investing helps. But, sometimes all those good efforts evaporate through no fault of your own. Even state and federal government pensions aren't a guarantee.

Because....s*?t happens and that's just life.
