Can you afford to retire and still maintain the lifestyle that you've become accustomed to?
It's unfortunate, but many people who can afford to retire don't realize that they probably actually can. Too often it is misunderstood how taxes work in your working years vs. once you are retired. Know that different sources of income are taxed differently. Most important is the after tax income that you will have available to you. This video will show an example of a couple the year before and then after they retire. Yes, gross income might be quite a bit less, but again it's the after tax that matters.
