Everybody dreams of a "golden retirement"--carefree times, financial security, good health, great weather. But without the proper planning, that dream can easily turn into a nightmare. Retiring Right was developed to provide you with all the facts you need to design your own individual retirement plan so that you can make your special dream a reality. Written by Dr. Lawrence J. Kaplan, one of this country's leading experts in the field of retirement planning, this highly practical, easy-to-understand book answers all your questions about savings and investment income, available tax shelters, the Social Security system, and so much more.
Each section covers a particular area of interest and concern, including lifestyle issues such as working, leisure, retirement housing, and care facilities; long-term retirement funding, including savings and investments, Social Security, pensions, and annuities; day-to-day financial considerations, such as budgeting, credit, inflation, and taxes; life insurance, health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, and Medigap; and preparing for the inevitable through estate planning, wills, and trusts. All information reflects the latest laws and regulations so that you can take full advantage of the newest tax laws and maximize your retirement income.
Through personalized planning guides, self-tests, personal data forms, and worksheets, Retiring Right helps you apply successful retirement strategies to meet your individual needs. These handy guides allow you to easily and accurately assess your financial situation, select and implement the means by which you can achieve financial security, choose your retirement goals, and ultimately chart your own course towards years of happy retirement.
