It probably wont be. My 401k I do through work, and the IRA on the side, wont be enough. But I guess there is always other options. We can institute something like Ättestupa, jump off of cliffs at the age of 65, to avoid being a strain on the younger productive members of society. Sad to say, there isn't enough money in the world to fund every old person, most utterly reliant on expensive pharmaceuticals and constant medical care, to include 24/7 nursing. Not that it would happen, we live in democratic societies, the same reason Social Security won't ever be properly reformed is because old people vote in record numbers, and young people barely do. They'll keep voting themselves more benefits, screw the young!
Also Medicare Parts B and D do a pretty good job of taking care of our medical expenses at least so far. Of courae, we’re relatively young and healthy.
As a lifelong Republican, never thought I’d be saying that. But never thought I’d live this long.
