The recent turbulence in the U.S. stock markets is spooking some older workers and retirees, a group that was hit particularly hard during the most recent financial crisis.
There's no indication, though, that the recent volatility has brought about large-scale overhauls in retirement planning.
"There's a lot of fear that if you have another event like 2008 and you retire the year before or the year after, you're screwed. I'm not taking that risk," says Mark Patterson, a recently retired patent attorney from Nashville, Tennessee. "There's a huge fear of folks my age that they're going to run out of money and they're going to need to rely on the government for help."
A former Ohio judge convicted of assaulting his estranged wife in 2014 was taken into custody last week after she was found dead, NBC News reported.
Lance Mason served nine months for the assault on Aisha Fraser, which took place in front of their children, according to NBC affiliate WKYC. After his release, Mason was hired to serve in Cleveland's government, but he was fired Saturday after his arrest.
Police in Shaker Heights, Ohio, didn't immediately give details about Fraser's death but called it a "terrible tragedy."
Fraser was a teacher for two decades and an uncle said in a statement that "Heaven just got a magnificent angel," according to WKYC.

Swift Beef Company is recalling approximately 99,260 pounds of raw ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli, the U.S Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday.
The problem was discovered on Nov. 15, 2018, when the FSIS visited Swift Beef Company in response to a sample collected at a further processing establishment that was later confirmed positive for E. coli O157:H7.
The affected products that were recalled on Nov.16 were shipped to retail distributors for further processing and for use in locations in California, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. They also bear the establishment number "EST. 628" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

About 4,000 residents fled Guatemala's Volcano of Fire Monday as red-hot rock and ash spewed into the sky and cascaded down the slopes toward an area devastated by a deadly eruption earlier this year.
Guatemala's volcanology unit said that explosions from the 12,300-foot high mountain shook homes with "constant sounds similar to a train locomotive."
Incandescent material burst as high as 3,200 feet above the crater and flows of hot rock and ash extended nearly 2 miles down one flank of the volcano. Hot blasts of pyroclastic material pushed down canyons on the slopes, while a column of ash rose nearly 23,000 feet above sea level and drifted toward Guatemala City to the east.

President Donald Trump on Saturday acknowledged Californians suffering from twin tragedies, walking through the ashes of a mobile home and RV park in a small northern town all but destroyed by deadly wildfires and privately consoling people grieving after a mass shooting at a popular college bar outside Los Angeles.
"This has been a tough day when you look at all of the death from one place to the next," Trump said before flying back to Washington.
Trump's visits to areas of Northern and Southern California in the aftermath of unprecedented wildfires that have killed more than 70 people gave him what he sought in flying coast to coast and back in a single day — a grasp of the desolation in the heart of California's killer wildfires.

President Donald Trump said there is no reason for him to listen to a recording of the "very violent, very vicious" killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which has put him in a diplomatic bind: how to admonish Riyadh for the slaying yet maintain strong ties with a close ally.
Trump, in an interview that aired Sunday, made clear that the audio recording, supplied by the Turkish government, would not affect his response to the Oct. 2 killing of Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post who had been critical of the Saudi royal family.
"It's a suffering tape, it's a terrible tape. I've been fully briefed on it, there's no reason for me to hear it," Trump said in the interview with "Fox News Sunday." ''I know everything that went on in the tape without having to hear it."
