- A retirement party is a great way to commemorate the work achievements of a boss, co-worker or loved one. Entering retirement is a milestone that everyone looks forward to reaching some day. When that special person is ready to leave the workplace and enter their retirement, it signifies a new chapter in their lives, and it should be celebrated as such. Here are some ideas on how to plan a great retirement party that everyone will enjoy.
- Retiring early is great if you are able to plan and save enough money to live comfortably for the rest of your life. But what about healthcare costs?

Some healthcare costs may affect your budget in retirement because you are paying higher premiums and they aren’t tax-deductible. In previous years, Baby Boomers who retired early had a difficult time finding affordable healthcare coverage if they didn’t meet the age requirement for Medicare. Now, there are a variety of healthcare options available for early retirees. All you need to do is navigate through the healthcare system and find which option fits your needs.
