Topic Submission

There were quite a few topics that stuck out to me, but the topic I have decided on is “Retirement”, this is something every adult should have especially when they have aged out or reached retirement age (62-65). Retirement is the “withdrawal from one’s position or occupation or from active working life” (Merriam-Webster). Which means they will permanently leave the workforce, with that being said retirement funds need to have been saved up until that time. I think retiring is a great thing to be able to reach, however in order to do so one has to make sure they will be financially stable. To obtain that financial stability they should have been saving and putting funds into a retirement savings plan. This is extremely important to adult development and especially aging/aged adults, because this is their life line and will determine when they can stop working. It is even more important now than ever, because with the way things are going there may not be any social security left in the next 10-20 years to come.
