Infographic: Health Care Costs in Retirement

Are you ready for this potential budget buster?

En español | Many of us don't know how health care costs will impact our savings and retirement, and we may have questions about how much money we will need, or how much Medicare will cover. 


This infographic, based on industry-supported data, shows that Medicare may cover as little as 51 percent of your health care costs in retirement. AARP's Health Care Costs Calculator is a free tool that will help you estimate how much you will pay for health care, based on the condition of your health. In addition to estimates, the calculator offers you a personalized plan to help you minimize costs. 

How will your health affect your retirement savings?
