The Retirement Survival Guide: How to Make Smart Financial Decisions in Good Times and Bad (Revised)

By Julie Jason
From a top investment advisor comes time-tested, rock-solid retirement advice for people of every income level.
Given today's dire headlines, planning a secure retirement has become a more critical task than ever. This revised edition of Julie Jason's award-winning guide--updated to reflect current laws and statistics--will help Americans seeking safety and stability in a time of economic change. In addition to showing those on the verge of retirement how to create their own "personal pension," investment educator Jason deftly guides prospective retirees through the otherwise bewildering process of evaluating their needs, anticipating future expenses (and managing current ones), and converting present assets into future retirement income. To achieve this goal, she assembles--and shares with the reader--an entire tool kit of self-assessments, tables, checklists, and essential questions.

"A fast read on a difficult-to-follow subject. In these tougher times, a guide like this becomes an even more invaluable tool." --Jonathan Dahl, Editor in Chief, SmartMoney

"Hard-working Americans need a road map through today's bewildering financial world. From the basics of financial planning to understanding how to secure a dignified retirement, Julie Jason has provided a financial GPS for attaining your goals." --Joseph Borg, Director, Alabama Securities Commission

"Whether you're a do-it-yourself investor or want a professional to help you, The AARP Retirement Survival Guide spells out what you need to consider and understand to make informed retirement-income planning decisions." --Betty Meredith, InFRE Retirement Resource Center

"[I]t's well worth the book's cover price to delve into these somewhat arcane financial instruments if only because the author posits, in plain English, the ups and downs . . . If that isn't clear enough, she creates a fictional case study with numbers and charts, accompanied by a straightforward assessment on ease of understanding, complexity, risks, safety, costs and taxes, and the salesperson's motivation. That approach characterizes all of the chapters, whether on tax-deferred accounts or sales scams to avoid. Resources and research cinch the deal to consider this top of the borrower's pile." --Booklist
