Personal Finance Advisors Warn Clients Not to Take Their Health Too Seriously

According to the study, led by Dr. Fernando Gutierrez, eating healthy and getting frequent exercise can lead to cases of longer and more active life spans.

“We just don’t want people to outlast their retirement savings,” says Richard Rojeck, Chair of the Certified Financial Planners Board of Directors.  “It’s a known fact that the longer you live and the more active you are, the more money you’ll need in retirement.  Most of our clients just aren’t prepared, financially, for the consequences of a healthier lifestyle.”

Mr. Rojeck is not alone in his concerns over the healthy living “fad” that is sweeping across the country.  Susan Collins (no relation to the slow speaking Maine Senator) works with many clients that have chosen their health over their financial wellbeing.  “What these people don’t realize is that it is a whole lot easier to NOT take care of themselves than it is to find additional sources of income in retirement.  We just don’t want them to live into their late 80’s and 90’s only to realize that they are out of money.”

To ensure that you’re wealthy enough for a healthier lifestyle, doctors recommend that you seek the advice of a qualified financial planning professional.
