If you've evolved beyond an invincible, self-absorbed twenty something, this book is worth your attention. The authors have done their homework and produced a convenient, digestible work that serves as a valuable resource on the complexities of health care in retirement. They make a strong case that informed strategy and planning are needed well before retirement age and illustrate the coupling between Medicare and Social Security that is typically neglected. Perhaps most useful are the citations they provide for the requirements and figures presented which allow the reader to verify and keep current as policies change in the future.

Format: Paperback
The entire concept of "planning for retirement" is uprooted and left raw for analysis in this book. The knowledgable writers, all highly qualified professionals in their fields, remind readers with real-world applications and research, that no one is safe from the burdens or complexities of healthcare plans, Social Security, and Medicare. The [likely outdated] "reference materials" seen on bookshelves will not embrace the current realities of what we are up against as this book successfully outlines. This resource dissects several controversial items which must be discussed with a qualified advisor - one who will not only protect client's financial interests, but will also ensure their future well-being through healthcare options. It is without reservation that I recommend this resource to anyone seeking ways to protect their own future as well as the lives of those they love.

Excellent, scary book. Dan McGrath is running around with his hair on fire, and for good reason. Medicare costs and premiums are rising 7% a year since the inception of the program back in the late 60's and there is no end in sight for this inflationary trend. Dan outlines the surcharges applied to the basic Medicare Part B and D premiums we all must pay starting at 65, thus a careful investor might think long and hard about non-taxable income sources when he or she retires, sources not seen by the government and thus not triggering surcharges which over the next 10-20 years could result in Medicare premiums well over $10,000 a year.

The information in this book provides new perspectives on financial planning to maximizes retirement income after taxes and Medicare surcharges for pre-retirees in the asset accumulation phase and retirees in the drawdown phase. There are number of modifications to the standard financial plans that should be considered in view of this information. The use of insurance products and annuities appears to be over stressed. It is important to have a financial advisor who is current with law changes that affect retirement matters.

This book discussing the changes that have occurred in our retirement planning is much needed as the awareness has not reached the general population. Education is the key so people can adjust their plans accordingly. I look forward to reading the expert opinions!
