Dear Quentin, I am concerned about my financial future. I lost everything during the 2008 stock-market crash, and I was in a slump financially and homeless, and I had no vehicle for nearly seven years. I have spent the last decade recovering.  I am 58 with $250,000 in a high-yield savings account, $150,000 in stocks and a Roth IRA. I also have $35,000 in an emergency fund. I have a $1,200 a month mortgage, while my home is currently valued at around $350,000. I have $5,000 in fixed monthly income, and earn $75,000 to 150,000 a year. I owe $2,000 in credit-card debit, $25,000 on two vehicle loans. I don’t have $1 million or more as I had planned. Why am I still worried — and should I be?
