About the Book

“The word ‘retirement’ for today’s retirees and soon-to-be retirees means exactly the opposite of what it meant for our parents and grandparents. It now means beginning rather than stopping. What will your next beginning be? Today’s Guide to Retirement Planning, a resource for adults ages fifty and over, helps you figure it out. This is a book that actually forces you to prioritize by taking you through a personal and financial inventory to create a plan that you will follow because it’s your plan. The section on the big ten major financial planning roadblocks is, by itself, worth the price of admission and invaluable for everyone. This book will guide you with practical advice not only on tax, investment, and estate planning but also in coordinating that with your own personal wish list for your next beginning.”

—Ed Slott, CPA, founder of

“Baby boomers are reinventing retirement. In Today’s Guide to Retirement Planning, financial advisers David Hays and Doug Hughes offer important guidelines for adults on the cusp of this unchartered territory. Throughout our working lives, we tend to focus on how much money we need to save for retirement. But little attention is given to how we will spend our time once we get there. David Hays offers some thoughtful questions to help preretirees envision their next chapter, how to pay for it, and how to adapt if plans change. It’s essential reading for future retirees.”

—Mary Beth Franklin, contributing editor, InvestmentNews
