Why The Villages® Community is the Perfect place to retire?

There comes a time in everyone's life when it is time to hang up the briefcase or work boots in exchange for a more relaxing and carefree living. You've worked your whole life, and now you deserve to live life the way you have always wanted, where you have always wanted.

So what makes The Villages® Community the perfect place to retire?

Location- Most people dream of leaving the cold behind and retiring to a more tropical environment, a place to feel the warm breeze and watch the palm trees sway. Moving to Key West or a tropical island isn't a good idea for many retirees because they still want to have easy access to their families or to make it easy for them to visit them. That why The Villages® Community is the perfect location to retire! It is paradise in a very convenient location in Central Florida! You still get the beaches, warm weather, and a relaxing atmosphere without sacrificing being with your friends and family.

Active Lifestyle- Being retired doesn't mean you want to stop living life! The opposite is true. Now that you have more time on your hands you can finally do all the things you never had time to do when you were younger. The Villages® community has something for everybody; golfing, tennis, pickleball, painting classes, beautiful swimming pools, and everything to do under the Sun you could imagine.

Entertainment- There is never a dull moment for a Village resident with multiple town squares providing unique live entertainment every night! Each square has plenty of seating and dance space as you sip cocktails, make new friends, and boogie the night away. Or you can visit the vast array of shops and eateries located all around the area.

Golf cart access- Leave your car in the garage and take a breezy ride to the store or lunch in your golf cart. Just about everywhere in The Villages® Community is easy to get to with the golf cart paths.

Clean and beautiful!- The Villages® Community is a mesmerizing, pristine oasis where they take great pride in keeping up the landscaping with lush tropical foliage and colorful flowers. The gorgeous architecture, water features, clean streets, and sidewalks remind you that you are indeed in paradise.

The Villages® Community is sometimes called Disney World for retirees because it is clean and beautiful and there is so much fun to be had. Speaking of Disney World, that is an extra perk of living here, all of the theme parks are just an hour away, and the beaches are just a little less than 2 hours away in each direction. It is the perfect location to start a new and exciting life!

The SECURE ACT Encourages Annuities.

Monday, July 15, 2019

The political world seems to be turned on its head every other day, but thankfully there is plenty good that comes from our House of Representatives.  One of those good things is an act that benefits retirees and protects them after they've done their part in the working world. The SECURE Act, otherwise known as the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act, has just recently passed with a massive wave of support. In general, this bill gives retirees more access to workplace pensions and makes it, so they don't have to jump through hoops to get annuities they're deserved.

Back when 401(k) plans were introduced during the Revenue Act in 1978, it let employees invest and save for their future from their paychecks. Great, right? Well, yes but most retirees don't know exactly how much to save for the rest of their days. Will they live comfortably? Or will the money run out because of unexpected medical expenses or other things? The SECURE Act rights that wrong and even promotes the use of annuities by companies! This is fantastic news since it's not an easy or cheap thing to get an annuity.
