Retirement can last 20 or more years and Healthcare is one of the biggest expenses…and worries…people face. A study by HealthView Services projects that health care inflation will remain at almost 12% ( 2-2.5 times higher than US inflation) over the next two years. For an average 65-year-old couple who start receiving Social Security payments at 65, healthcare expenses will consume 68% of their benefits.
Additionally, the report states that “While most 65-year-old couples retiring in 2021 can expect their retirement healthcare costs to fall between $156,208 and $1,022,997, factors such as the state in which they retire, coverage choices and chronic health conditions can have a significant impact on where within that range they may fall, highlighting the importance of personalized healthcare cost planning”
