Canadians Need to Take Control of Their Debt Today to Live a Comfortable Retirement Tomorrow

“In retirement, you are living on a fixed income, which can make paying down debt difficult, but not impossible. As individuals approach retirement, they need to make every effort to reduce their debt as much as they can." - David Smith

According to David Smith, debt management expert for Personal Bankruptcy Canada, the debt repayment decisions that retirees and soon-to-be-retired Canadians make today will dramatically affect how financially comfortable they will live in retirement.

According to a recent CIBC/Harris Decima survey, nearly 60 percent of retired Canadians are currently in debt and more than 75 percent of non-retirees are holding debt. The survey also reports that the percentage of retirees with debt was highest in the country’s Atlantic Canada region compared to the rest of the country.

“In retirement, you are living on a fixed income, which can make paying down debt difficult, but not impossible,” said Smith, a Trustee in Bankruptcy, and Co-Founder of Personal Bankruptcy Canada. “As individuals approach retirement, they need to make every effort to reduce their debt as much as they can.”

“There are many debt management options available to individuals in retirement and for those preparing for that next stage in life,” added Smith. “With the help of qualified financial specialists, individuals can leverage a variety of debt management solutions to help ease one’s debt burden going into their golden years.”
