You may have read the beginning at at age 65 a couple will need $275,000 to cover all health care related costs throughout retirement.
If you are scared by that number, let’s think about it. That’s over 25-30 years and includes inflation.
Any major expense will look scary if you try to estimate it over a life period.
My property taxes at the current amount will cost me $360,000 over the next 25 years without any inflation added.
So I may have a choice, get health care or be homeless.
