Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

Nearly 50% of seniors aged 75 and over have outstanding debt, according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute. That’s up from just 25% back in 1992. Worse yet, the most notable debt increases stem from lower-income seniors who need to rely on credit cards to make ends meet.

Now the good news is that the debt carried by seniors 75 and older is primarily of the mortgage variety, and that’s the good kind to have. But many retirees carry outstanding credit card balances, and some even have student debt hanging over their heads.

All told, the median debt level among seniors 75 and over is $20,900, and while that may not seem like a lot, the problem is that folks on a fixed income have limited options for paying it off — especially when we consider that the typical Social Security recipient today collects just under $17,000 a year in benefits. If you’re approaching retirement with debt, you should make every effort to get rid of it before bringing your career to a close. Otherwise, you risk not only struggling financially, but carrying that debt with you to the grave.
