Retiring Right-Planning for a Successful Retirement (2002 edition)

“Why plan for retirement?” This question, asked by the author, Lawrence J. Kaplan, in the introduction of Retiring Right, launches the reader on an informative journey toward answers. Kaplan, a retirement planning lecturer who has published several books, covers a broad spectrum of topics including saving, investing and estate planning.

Divided into five sections- lifestyles; long-term funding for retirement; day-to-day financial considerations; insurance; and final facts -the text covers many aspects of dealing with retirement planning. Kaplan’s book also touches upon Social Security with the most up to date information helping the reader to determine the role Social Security may play in his or her retirement.

In addition, Kaplan provides a comprehensive glossary that offers simplified definitions to complex retirement planning concepts. Various worksheets, including an “Analysis of Your Portfolio” and “Determine the State of Your Credit”, may also be helpful in creating a solid retirement strategy. 

Retiring Right is a thorough retirement planning resource that not only emphasizes the importance of planning for retirement, but also provides helpful tools and timely information to do so.
