I retired at 71.

Largest expenses are:

Health Care

Health care and insurance costs can be very difficult to deal with. In one year we spent more than $10,000 on "Affordable Care Act" insurance for my spouse, who was under 65. Add to that the actual cost of health care including deductibles.

In 2017 the above were about $23,000.

Add to that "Long Term Care" insurance, my Medicare insurance and so on.
