Publisher's summary

Retirement planning was simple and predictable 40 years ago. All you needed was your company pension, personal savings, and Social Security.

Those days are long gone. Most public pensions are underfunded, and private companies can't get rid of them fast enough. Social Security's own trustees predict it will run out of money in less than 20 years. And most people haven't saved even a fraction of what they should.

Retiring comfortably today is not about saving more, it's about saving smart. In Don't Retire Broke, you will learn the following:

  • Traps to avoid before you retire
  • How to maximize Social Security benefits
  • What to do now if you still have a pension
  • How to keep the IRS out of your IRA

Isn't it time to make sure you don't retire broke?

Great retirement info

A bit repetitive, but that could be a good thing if you have memory issues.

Decent - Worth the Read

Sometimes I struggle to want to finish. Quite complicated to understand. this definitely didn't make me an expert. But I did get a lot of good information out of the book. Worth the read

Useful information

As with diversification in investing, it is a good diversify the advice you read in forming your own strategy. While this book was not my favorite book, it did offer a valuable perspective and I feel it is well worth the read.
