Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Updated to incorporate changes since the previous edition's publication, this clear, comprehensive guide has undergone further editing to ensure accuracy and clarity of information on a highly complicated subject. Contents are divided into 17 segments, including a sample retirement computation and a valuable glossary. Case explanations are straightforward and accessible, while Landis's (founder, Thinking Retirement) use of subheadings, bulleted lists, sidebar explanations, italicized terms, clarifying charts, and notes on potential reforms facilitate readers' understanding of eligibility and related caveats. VERDICT Well organized, clear-cut, and eminently readable, this slim yet information-rich guide will make eligibility and application issues significantly less daunting for retirees and survivors and their consultants.
