Retiring Under 65 and Looking for Health Insurance Options?
Often individuals think about their retirement and look forward to being able to enjoy more time to do the things they have been meaning to do, to slow down and spend more time with their family. It is common for them to have passing thoughts of maybe retiring prior to the age of 65. But unfortunately, they quickly push the idea out of their minds because of their need for continued health coverage outside of work. Many of their thoughts, lead to not even talking about with a spouse or family member let alone to even inquire. The common thoughts and/or misconceptions people have as it pertains to individual health insurance options outside of their employment are the following:
- It can’t be affordable on a retirement income
- I wouldn’t have as good of benefits
- It doesn’t cover my preexisting conditions
- The health insurance companies aren’t familiar and surely aren’t as good as my group health coverage would be that I have had for years.
