So, while living longer is now a given, the challenge many face is finding a way to make a living longer.
Three groups need to change their act so that we avoid a collective socio-financial train wreck:
1. Governments need to increase the retirement age, at which benefits such as Social Security and Medicare kick in.
2. Financial Institutions must up the insurance premiums they ask for.
3. And most of us need to save more.
Nobody said this was going to be easy. Personally, I don't like the notion of retirement anyway. It's bad for your health.
