B.C. couple has done everything right financially, but these tweaks will make retirement even more comfortable
Source Financial Post
A B.C. couple we'll call Helen, 46, and Sam, 58, have a daughter Kim, 11. They have take-home income of $12,800 per month from their jobs, his in high tech, hers in a non-profit community service organization.
Both arrived in Canada at age 29 (but 12 years apart) and since then they have done everything right financially - they have built up $422,000 in registered and non-registered savings and cash. Sam wants to retire in seven years at 65.
