My boyfriend and I have plans to live together within 6 months in NYC.

Is there a benefit to entering a domestic partnership? Thanks!

I am worried. I am 59 have $100,000 save for retirement due to being a single parent. I am now saving 12 percent of my salary which is $73K per yr.  My company has a 5 percent match. I would like to retire at 66 or 68 what do I need to do to make this possible ?
