It is highly important that certainty in retirement for self employed individuals must be achieved especially for those who work for themselves without any full time employees. Taking advantage of small business retirement plans is crucial these days, now that retirement has been consistently an issue to Americans regardless of age and status. Most number of middle aged Americans worry about not having enough money come retirement age and this year’s baby boomers expectations on retirement shows a significant drop from last year in terms of confidence. Even most of non-retired boomers anticipated to settle for retirement at the age of 70 or older.
Based on Insured Retirement Institute’s (IRI) fourth annual report on “Retirement Preparedness of the Boomer Generation”, from 2011 where 44% of boomers who believe they are doing or did a great job in terms of financially preparing for retirement, only 35% this year are confident that they are financially prepared as they reach retirement age. The decrease in confidence rate has been consistent each year since IRI started doing this report. Also, more than 60% of boomers are considering retiring at the age of 65 years old and above in which 28% of them plans to retire at 70 years old, or even beyond.
