Nearly 50% of older Americans depend on Social Security for at least 50%-89.9% of their income, according to Retirement Income Journal which cites the April 29, 2014 AARP and the U.S.Cenus Bureau and draws from a statistical sample of over 42,000. Moreover, 23.6% rely on Social Security for 90-99.9% of their income and 14.3% rely on Social Security for 100% of their income.
A decade ago a MetLife Employee benefits study found that 48% of employees rank "outliving their savings"as their greatest retirement fear. A January 30,2008 -February 2,2008 Gallup poll revealed that such concerns are not limited to "older people"eithover 40%of 18-29 year olds and 53% of 30-64 year olds having these concerns.
Structured settlements provide safety, security and guarantees that are attractive as stable income solutions for people of all ages. Most people would like a "job" they can never be "fired" from.
