50s & 60s Risk: Inflation

Inflation erodes the value of savings and reduces returns.

Conservative investments that pay a fixed income run the risk of being unable to keep pace with inflation. For example, the cost of health care, one of the largest expenditures retirees face, has been growing at over 5% annually.
