A specter is haunting the baby-boom generation—the specter of retirement. The generation that’s used to having it all is suddenly finding that it doesn’t have enough. The stock market bubble has deflated, interest rates are at all-time lows, Social Security is questionable, pension plans are underfunded, and personal savings are woefully inadequate. This comes at a time when medical advances are assuring that we’ll be the longest-lived generation ever.
The authors grapple with the coming baby-boom retirement crisis and show you how to get back on track. They outline the steps you can take today to assure your future tomorrow. Backed up with the facts and figures, they lay out exactly how much you need to save in order to maintain your standard of living, and how to invest your dollars to get the maximum return from your savings. For those already retired, they explain how to tap in to your next egg to get the most income while keeping your money safe. This is a survival manual for the difficult but exciting road to retirement security.
