A bus ride to get warm?

As if the state of retirement planning wasn’t depressing enough, the NY Times piece from the front page of Sunday’s paper is pretty darn disturbing! I know that this area is pretty intimidating for a lot of folks, but please people, become more informed about your finances, because stories like these are going to become more prevalent in the near future. If you don’t have the knowledge to dig a bit into your planning, find someone who does. It’s imperative that you have whatever funds are earmarked for your future working as hard as they possibly can for you. Don’t ignore this please, it’s your future standard of living that’s at stake here!

A great retirement planning read!

This New York Times review of a retirement planning book, specifically aimed at those 50 and over, but really apropos for all, is well worth your time. I highly recommend it for those of you struggling with your planning.  It is available on Amazon, at less that $13 in electronic form. It’s not your normal hard to understand, written for finance folks, tome.
