Q: My wife and I are in our mid-50s, have no debt, have healthy retirement savings, and would like to retire soon. But our biggest concern about retirement is the cost of health insurance until we’ll eligible for Medicare at age 65. What are the best, most cost-effective options for getting health care coverage at our age if we decide to retire?

Age old health care secret. Marry someone with family health insurance coverage. They will look more attractive if they have this coverage.

The real problem is the cost of health insurance. My friends whom are over 60 but have retired are only now discovering that the cost of health insurance are now over $600 per month and rising. That is a large amount of money and that could easily pay for a new monthly car payment if the cost was not so depressing. I have Federal health insurance plus medicare and I am under 65. The young people should look long and hard for any federal job if they can find one. That was the best choice I ever made in my life.
