How to Supplement Your Retirement Income with Transcription Work

Uncategorized Sep 17, 2019

Are you approaching retirement or already retired, trying to figure out how to close the income gap? This article is going to show you how to supplement your retirement income with transcription work.

According to this source, today, more and more retirees are not fully prepared for retirement, financially. 

What does that mean?

Well, people are retiring younger, usually due to job loss or health-related reasons. While that may sound like a dream for many, retiring early, the truth is that it can be a financial shock.

This NerdWallet survey shows that the average retirement age is 59.

That’s much lower than the traditional age 65 that many know as the typical retirement age. So does retiring six years later really make all that much difference?

The truth is, it does!

How to Close the Income Gap

So the bottom line is, people are retiring younger and they are looking for ways to increase their income.

Additionally, people are also retiring without enough money!

They reach age 65 and are ready to move into this next stage in their life, retirement, but are not financially prepared to do so. You can do things to make your retirement last. You can stop saving for retirement once you are retired. You can adapt to your new income level, and more.

And you can make more money in retirement.

Think about it. You can stop stressing out about money by creating more income for yourself.

In retirement age, a lot of retirees are looking for opportunities that are:

  • Flexible
  • Part-time
  • Well-paying

They have worked for years and want to be rewarded with retirement but need more income in order to enjoy their retirement comfortably.
