The news has been worse for recent retirees and for those preparing to leave the workforce. While younger investors have plenty of time to watch their portfolios recover, investors in and around retirement are left wondering if they’ll still be able to enjoy the lifestyle they envisioned.

A retiree who needs to withdraw money from his or her portfolio to live, for example, could be in the precarious position of selling at market lows!
