From the New York Times retirement expert, an authoritative resource for successfully assessing and tackling the real costs and challenges of retirement Only a few years ago, the question on many Americans' minds wasn't how will I retire but when. Now, with 401(k)s and IRAs at a fraction of their previous value and health-care costs soaring, it's time for a definitive guide book that walks you through the fundamentals of retirement. With his biweekly Seniority column in The New York Times , Fred Brock has earned a reputation for providing frank and pragmatic advice on the changing landscape of retirement. In chapters written exclusively and originally for this book, he offers updated thinking on all the essentials for a smart and secure retirement, including how to • determine new personal finance and investing goals • find untapped asset streams, such as reverse mortgages • deal with the tangle of taxes on pensions, family gifts, and other income • work during retirement • choose a community and housing • maximize your health insurance • assess long-term assisted-living arrangements He offers indispensable tools for analyzing your true costs of retirement, independent of the mutual-fund industry hype and Social Security scares. And a substantial list of national, regional, and online resources as well as worksheets allow you to customize and realize your retirement plan.
