Planning for a Happy Retirement

Do you think of retirement as a distant or even nonexistent phase in your future? The reality is that retirement will come and the money you save now for retirement is your future paycheck. The need to save and invest applies to all generations and all career fields. 

The new public television documentary When I'm 65  explores how our financial and lifestyle choices today affect the whole of our lives. It is a generational look at the opportunities and obstacles that lie before us.
