no5failure to make along term sustainable retirement plan factoring in health care costs which rise dramatically as you age
joining a plan in your late 40.s our early 50.s can pay dividends if you become seriously ill overseas

no6rent our buy this comes down to personnel choice but someone with a limited income post retirement age would be advised to rent rather then buy as rents are ridiculously low compared to buying which can drasticley reduce your buffer of spare cash
