The Essential Retirement Guide
A Contrarian's Perspective
Hardcover ISBN: 1119111129
The Essential Retirement Guide will detail saving for retirement– when, why, how, and how much. There is much miscommunication and false information about retirement planning. Inconsistences such as retirement target percentages of final pay, the amount of retirement income needed, and the use of proper investment vehicles, most of which cost hundreds of thousands of dollars more than necessary, all add to the mystification of most retirement planning advice. The book will answer: - When should I start to save? - What takes priority: paying off the mortgage or saving for retirement? - What is the most tax-effective investment vehicle during the accumulation phase? - How should I invest? - How much money do I need to retire comfortably? - How much retirement income will I need? - What percentage of my assets can I spend each year in retirement? - How will my spending habits change over the course of my retirement? - Do I need to worry about the cost of long-term care? Fresh thinking in terms of retirement planning is called for. Actuary Frederick M. Vettese will showcase new perspectives for everyone approaching retirement.

How Do I Get There from Here?
Planning for Retirement When the Old Rules No Longer Apply
Paperback ISBN: 0814438687
Challenge the way you think about retirement. Not long ago everyone knew what the word "retirement" meant. The expectation was that you worked until age 65-and then coasted through your golden years courtesy of a comfortable nest egg. Today, when living to 90 is common, when savings are slim, when people work longer and change jobs frequently, clinging to an outdated concept of retirement gets you nowhere. The changes ahead require an incremental approach to planning-and you better begin now. The new After 50 Lifestyle calls for more than money: it demands conscious engagement, diverse interests, and the ability to adapt. How Do I Get There from Here? helps you plot your direction for the coming decades. The first step is to acknowledge where you are-reviewing your assets, both the tangible (e.g. finances, health, relationships) and intangible (e.g. unfulfilled ambitions and new intentions). Then self-reflective questions and exercises walk you through imagining your future, identifying skills you'll need, and preparing for inevitable twists and turns along the way. A retirement of nonstop leisure is not just unreachable, but for most, undesirable. How Do I Get There from Here? guides you toward a dynamic future...designed just for you.
