We purchased a copy of Jason Parker’s first book two years ago and applied many of the principles he explains so clearly. His new book, Sound Retirement Planning, includes all these principles plus new, updated information that all retirees and pre-retirees must know. The chapter “Can I Afford to Retire?” was crucial in helping us structure our assets to ensure ongoing income and maintain the bulk of those assets throughout our retirement years, with minimal risk.
We are now in our second year of retirement, and we no longer worry about outliving our assets. The peace of mind is priceless! If you are the least bit insecure about how to plan for your retirement, you must read this book! We’re giving copies to our adult children, too, so they can start planning early!
The author of this book provided a pre-sale pdf copy of the book to me for free.
He says that retirement is not one-size-fits-all, some are ultra conservative and would benefit from some sort of hybrid annuity plan, others may prefer A more aggressive approach, others may one the combination of annuities and bonds with index funds.
He is also very passionate about long-term care insurance. He seems to favor life insurance policies with long-term care riders which guarantee that you wont waste money on coverage that you may never need, some of that money can go back to your family.
One take away from the book is that we go to expert doctors when we need the best doctor that we can afford, so why shouldn't we get the best guidance we could possibly get with personal finance?
