Affording health care throughout retirement

Vanguard financial advisors can help you plan for the costs of health care in retirement. We'll start by assessing factors such as your income, expenses, location, current health care coverage, and more. If your expenses shift in the future, our advisors will help you identify potential impacts to your situation.
They'll provide personalized estimated health care costs, as well as education on strategies for Social Security and Medicare. This information can help you weigh the pros and cons of your options, including other coverage plans, to determine what's best for you. We also have resources, like our health care cost calculator and Medicare Match tool, to help you understand the whole picture.
Personal situations can change over time, so know that your choices aren't set in stone. We'll review your plan and adjust it when necessary. Ultimately, we'll make sure you have the information and support you need to make the best decision for your future health care expenses.

All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest.

Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing Fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. Instead, investors must buy and sell Vanguard ETF Shares in the secondary market and hold those shares in a brokerage account. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling.
