Preparing for Retirement: Ten Years Out
Will you have enough to retire comfortably? Most of us imagine retirement as a happy time, a reward for a lifetime of hard work, full of possibility ad potential. We have good reason to see retirement in a positive light. Americans are living longer, healthier lives than ever before. In fact, for some of us, retirement will make up for a full third of our lives. Of course, this means that our retirement assets will have to do more for us over a longer period of time. This makes planning for our retirement essential.
