The issue of building a comfortable retirement is something we’ve talked about before on the Ally Bank Straight Talk blog. So we were interested when our friends over at Wallet Pop put up a post with tips on how to bring in $1,000 a month while retired.
The article talks about keeping a part-time job or even continuing to work into your later years as potential ways to live well. They also mention the importance of CD laddering and how it can help you bring in $12,000 annually. In the end, the choices will vary from person to person, but all of them encourage people to take control of their retirement and lay the foundation for a good life.
What do you plan on using for an income source during your retirement? Are there other ways to bring in extra money that the post doesn’t talk about?
