All right, I’m not jealous but seriously THIS is a book I wish I had written!!!! Excellent book, I think you should read it NOW.

I particularly appreciated how the author reviews many different solutions for retirement planning. I like her focus on making sure you have a “purposeful retirement” — in other words, you have something to retire to, not just “no more work,” but something purposeful.

It’s the same kind of advice I give clients all the time, nicely packaged into this book.

The Big Retirement Risk: Running Out of Money Before You Run Out of Time by Erin Botsford

You can find the book online (like I did) or ask at your library. Clients may receive a copy from me upon request.

I’m reading this book and find it exceptionally clear and detailed.

If you have questions about:

  • when to start drawing Social Security,
  • how much you will receive,
  • how your spousal benefits can be maximized,
  • and other Social Security questions,

then I recommend you read this book. These are the kinds of questions I deal with when meeting with clients, so you can always ask me, too.

Social Security: The Inside Story, 2012 Edition by Andy Landis

You can find the book online; I’m not sure if it’s available at the library but it should be (it’s that useful)! My clients receive a copy of this book upon request.
