These price declines come as the Federal Reserve signaled it will be raising rates this year. While higher interest rates will knock down inflation, stock markets are likely to take a tumble when the hikes come – and analysts are predicting anywhere from 2 to 4 rate hikes this year.

As inflation has gained traction in the last year, commentators constantly remark about how it is particularly hard on retirees who live on a “fixed income.” Retirees do not live on fixed incomes. The 60% of households in the lower portion of the income distribution receive the bulk of their retirement income from Social Security (see Table 1).
