Debts are bothersome for any age but being in debt cycle becomes a huge burden especially when you reach out to your retirement age. Being in debt is always stressful emotionally which hinders peace of mind and accelerates restlessness in life. Many people tend to go to serious depression when they are stuck up at loan tensions post retirement.
Actually, when you reach up to your retirement, you are left with lesser income than before and hence it becomes more difficult to repay your loans along with your daily expenses. Besides, as you grow older, it becomes tougher to seek for another job that would help in repaying the loans.
This is why the financial experts always suggest to clear off all your dues before retirement when you are able bodied and enjoying your full salary. This is especially important when you are into loan cycles with higher interest rates.

Bonds are investments. They are traded in an open market. With respect to interest rates of the relevant general economy the values of these bonds are determined. There is a direct cause and effect relationship between the interest rates of the economy and your investment in bonds. Unlike the stocks the success of failure of the company or the corporation whose bonds you have purchase does not affect the interest rate or your return on investment because in case of bonds they are fixed. This fixed rate of return is usually termed as coupon rate. All bonds come with maturity dates.
On the date of maturity the principal amount and the rate of interest becomes fully payable to the investor. Generally if you are dealing in bonds then investing in companies that have a higher credibility are safer bets. Blue chip company bonds or government bonds are examples of what we term as safe bonds
