Paying for Retirement
Experts suggest you should start saving for your retirement with your first full-time job, but most people in their 20s don’t think about retirement, let alone saving for it. The earlier you start a whole-life insurance plan, 401k, or other investment programs, the more options you will have in covering retirement communities’ costs.
If you are unsure about financing your retirement, you should meet with a financial planner as soon as possible. They can go over your retirement goals and develop a retirement plan to meet your goals.
Some of the more common ways of paying for retirement living costs include:
- Cash-value life insurance plans
- 401K, IRAs, and other investment packages
- Guaranteed income annuities
- Social security benefits
- Selling their home
At Baptist Retirement Community, we offer several senior living options to fit your retirement needs. We will work with your retirement goals and budget to find the right program to help you get the most out of your golden years.
Average Cost of Retirement Communities
The average cost of retirement communities in Texas is around $2,225 per month for independent living and $3,988 per month for assisted living. The cost of your retirement will depend on several factors, including your age, level of independence, and current medical needs.
