Just wondering how you are coping with a down turn in your income if you are retired and have income from stocks, bonds, 401k plans and Ira plans????

As a neighbor said today.....in old age it takes a lot of money to pay for the Maintance that our decaying bodies need to keep us going.

I also wonder how many of you are working part time now with the down turn........?????

ENJOY YOUR DAY.....

We are doing okay so far. Hubby is retired from the Air Force after 23 years, then he got a job with Civil Service and retired again after 20 years, plus he and I both get social security. I am thinking of getting a part time job, not because we need the money, but because I am getting bored being at home. Vique.

We didn't have a down turn in income. We were saving so much of his pay before retirement, that we were down right poor. After retirement we felt rich.
