Have you heard of a “Granny Pod”?
Granny pods are typically a pre-built structure that has been specifically designed to support aging in place. It is usually constructed on a family member or caregiver’s property.
Often installed as a temporary building, granny pods are usually small homes that offer special aging features like wider doorways, walk-in showers, and slip resistant floors. Some may even contain special medical technologies like alert systems or medical tracking devices.
Solutions to Common Financial Struggles for People 50 and Older
Partnering with a nonprofit consumer counseling agency in the country to offer solutions to the most common financial struggles facing seniors including Medicare assistance, debt and budget counseling, Social Security maximization, help with paying bills, reverse mortgage counseling and foreclosure prevention.
To provide senior services, we’re partnering with Money Management International, the largest nonprofit consumer counseling agency in the country.
Social Security since its founding has been designed as a safety net to help our nation’s retired workforce.
However, a new study commissioned by the Bankers Life Center for a Secure Retirement (CSR) has found Boomers are still too reliant on Social Security, with 38% now saying the monthly check will likely be their primary source of retirement income.
That’s up more than 25% from before the financial crisis of 2008, a year which seems to have changed the financial landscape on several fronts.
Before 2008, Boomers were younger and a lot more optimistic about retirement. Then, about 43% said they expected personal savings or earnings from a job to be their primary source of income during their Golden Years.
