Don't Die Broke: How to Turn Your Retirement Savings into Lasting Income
, by personal-finance writer and financial-education specialist Margaret A. Malaspina, offers a fresh take on one of today's hottest money matters by outlining ways to tap most effectively into the retirement nest egg that you're currently nurturing. While most such guides concentrate on actually amassing those future fiscal resources in the first place, Malaspina shows instead how to maximize what you're (hopefully) already building so you'll (hopefully) always have what you need. "Most people find themselves making decisions about retirement plan distributions with little guidance," she writes. "Few people understand the consequences of their choices--or, indeed, what choices they have." In clear, highly focused chapters, she offers solid suggestions for creating a lasting retirement income, lowering potential taxes, and building an estate worth passing along. --Howard Rothman
From Library Journal
Personal finance writer and financial education specialist Malaspina presents an excellent summary of the many options and decisions likely to be faced by the massive baby boomer population as they near retirement. She discusses such related topics as how to take money out of retirement plans, how to create a paycheck, how to manage assets as part of an estate or inherited from someone else's estate, how to provide for a spouse and transfer wealth to heirs, and how to seek guidance in selecting a financial advisor. This work's user-friendly approach to the complex decisions that have to be made about retirement savings set it apart from the crowd of other programs available. With narration by Susan O'Malley, this is highly recommended for all public libraries.ADale Farris, Groves, TX
