To stay at home…use your home
As Ghilarducci explains, we need to save 20 times our annual income (in some cases more) in financial assets to fund retirement. If you’re close to retirement that’s probably an impossible task without a winning lottery ticket. And Social Security won’t be enough to get us through the next 30 years.
