TORONTO, Oct. 9 /CNW/ - The Couples Retirement Study issued today by
ScotiaBank reveals that while many Canadians don't sufficiently plan ahead for
retirement, more than half admit that financial security is one of their
biggest worries for retirement.
According to Greg Bandler, CHIP's Senior Vice President of Sales &
Marketing, "Financial security is generally a great concern for seniors
contemplating or entering retirement. Often, individuals haven't planned ahead
for that time in their life, and find themselves struggling due to loss of
income, rather than enjoying their freedom. For over 20 years, CHIP has
provided Canada's seniors with a financial solution that gives them the
flexibility they need to achieve their goals. We encourage seniors to consult
their financial planner to determine if a CHIP Home Income Plan might help
them access the equity they have built up in their home, so they can enjoy
their retirement on their own terms, with their own savings."
