My biggest issue will be healthcare costs. My plan is to retire I plan to retire around the age of 55 which is just about 20 years from now. I planned my savings rates accordingly and have even used a conservative rate of return when projecting, but I have no idea how much healthcare will cost n 20 years.Donna It will be for many of us. Using intercst's GenX calculater, with my income growing modestly and with 10% investment growth, I can most likely FIRE in 8 years when I'm 53.The big "IF" is health care costs.My personal plan to combat the lion's share of health care costs is to be as healthy as physically possible. As a vegan, who eats 85% of of his food raw (with DW struggling to follow along), the risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and just about every other life destroying diseases is very low.I plan on getting a "high deductable catastrophic" health insurance policy and using some of my investments to meet the deductable if necessary in case of an accident.Intercst recommended a plan a few years back on REHP to invest that portion in health care stocks. I took that to heart and have a minor position in a few. So far, so good.Anyhoots! That's one idea and approach.decath
