Millions of Americans face the possibility of a personal retirement crisis in the coming years. In the not too distant future, known demographic trends, projected financial imbalances in Social Security and Medicare programs, changes in employer pension and retiree health plans—and inadequate planning—threaten to derail your retirement security. Only through personal education, informed planning, and disciplined action can you insure a reasonable standard of living and quality of life throughout your retirement years.

Retirement Security provides complete, candid, and insightful advice to help you separate retirement fact from fiction. Written by a retirement policy and planning expert with extensive experience in government and the private sector, this self-contained guide gives you the knowledge and the tools you need to make the most of your earnings and investments—both now and in the future. You will gain a solid understanding of the many components that affect your retirement security and the factors that drive them, including full coverage of Social Security, Medicare, pensions, retiree health arrangements, personal savings, and more. You will also find out how to design, implement, and amend your own retirement strategy, using a straightforward and effective seven-step method based on sound and proven retirement savings and investment principles.

Whether you are embarking on a career, nearing retirement, or already retired, don't let your golden years be tarnished by financial insecurity. Retirement Security will show you how to plan, save, and invest in your future so that you can afford to retire.

What is likely to happen to Social Security and Medicare programs?

How can I make the most of my employer-sponsored pension and savings plans?

How much income will I need for retirement?

Now you can find answers to these and other critical questions in one book—Retirement Security, the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to retirement planning currently available. Combining sound analysis of the different components of retirement income with practical guidance on developing your own retirement strategy, the book's unique, two-pronged approach gives you the knowledge and the tools you need to make the most of your financial resources both now and in the future.

Key features include: Comprehensive coverage of Social Security, Medicare, pensions, retiree healthcare, personal savings, and more.

A straightforward and effective seven-step method for devising and implementing your personal retirement plan. Crucial savings and investment principles to guide your retirement strategy.
