By Emily Guy Birken
It happens to the best of planners. You wake up and retirement is nearly here. Have you saved enough? Not nearly enough? That is often the case. How do you manage what you have saved? How do you navigate through all of the financial, family and medical decisions you will have to make in the coming years?
Birken’s book, The 5 Years Before You Retire, is a simple guidebook that answers some of these most stressful questions. Knowing that only half of Americans have put aside enough money for retirement, she helps future retirees focus on what they need to do to make the most of their remaining working years and formulate a realistic plan for retirement. Birken also includes financial charts and budget tables to help start a retirement plan. This book is an ideal guide, whether you need a crash course in retirement planning or a no-nonsense refresher course to get you back on track.
