As I came into my late 50’s, I realized I was far from financially prepared for retirement. I knew nothing about Social Security, Medicare, or retirement plans. I didn’t know when I could collect, how much I would get, what Medicare covered or when my 401(k) would kick in. I decided it was time to look.I gathered all the material I could from websites, pamphlets, and articles. I saw that the information was confusing, conflicting, and spread out. I wanted to make it simple for myself. So, I wrote it down in clear, easy-to-understand steps. As I did this, it occurred to me that there must be many others who could benefit from this as well, and I decided to share what I had learned in the hope that this information might help you on the road to a better, more fulfilling retirement.

“With its wealth of possibilities, anyone nervous about their upcoming retirement will come away from Retirement Basics feeling better informed and more confident about all the positive signs on their retirement horizon.”

“Many baby boomers are frozen with fear and have shied away from exploring the basic elements of retirement. This book takes the fear out of looking into what the future holds. It gives an overview of the most important aspects of retiring and how and when benefits are available.”
