Disclosure of Income/Affiliate Agreements

Retirement-Online earns income when readers make purchases from affiliate merchants. Retirement-Online endorses products because I like them. I have found merchants with products which I believe may appeal to retirees on specific retirement and senior-related products.

My main income comes from Google Adsense ads. These ads are selected by Google to generally appeal to Retirement-Online readers.

Retirement-Online is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

Please see the Privacy Policy for more information.
