      With no good options for school in the fall, how can parents decide whether to stay home or go to class?

      I think we can agree there are no good solutions when it comes to returning American kids to school in the age of coronavirus. Reopening in places where the virus is surging is a health gamble, and counties that choose to open schools will need a dizzying array of new procedures and smaller class sizes to mitigate risk.

      The cost conundrum: Once you find the right elder care, do the research to pay for it | Aging

"He was always a stickler about getting good insurance," she says.

      You won't pay for health care in retirement with one lump sum. That's the way these expenses are often presented, though, and the amounts are terrifying. Fidelity Investments, for example, says a couple retiring in 2019 at age 65 will need $285,000 for health expenses, not including nursing homes or other long-term care. The Employee Benefits Research Institute says some couples could need up to $400,000 — again, not including long-term care.

I also have another level-term policy for $150,000. The premiums for that policy are about $1,800 a year. We have no debt. We can easily pay our monthly household bills.

      5 Ways To Reduce Retiree Health Care Costs

      Fidelity’s annual retiree health care cost estimate found that couples retiring this year at 65 will need the same amount as in last year’s study. The cost assumes the couple have traditional Medicare. And that they pay deductibles and coinsurance for Part A and Part B (plus the premiums for Part B, which are $104.90 per month for most people). It also includes Part D prescription drug coverage premiums and out-of-pocket costs. It does not include long-term-care costs.
