A Note From the Editor
As those in the field of aging know all too well, many Americans are not adequately prepared for the basic costs of retirement nor the costs associated with care and services to remain independent.

When you consider the additional costs of care and services that are not planned for or covered by Medicare, a bleak retirement outlook presents itself for many middle-income seniors.

She also outlines the proposals under consideration at the federal level.
