Winslow, Maine (PRWEB) March 01, 2012
The facts are startling. In 2011, the Retirement Confidence Survey (RCS) found that workers are “more pessimistic than at any time in the two decades the RCS has been conducted.” In a separate study, the Los Angeles Times reported that “one-quarter of middle-class Americans fear they will have to work until they're at least 80 years old.” For many, it seems, comfortable retirement is little more than a pipe dream. Kevin R. Sullivan is out to change that perception.
In his new book “Managing Income in Retirement: Planning With Purpose” (published by AuthorHouse) Sullivan provides readers strategies on how to set up their retirement income, manage their investments and enter retirement realistically.
Sullivan wants readers to understand the urgency of retirement planning reform. “Ten thousand Baby Boomers are turning age 65 every day for the next 19 years and will soon hit the monumental shift from accumulating money to spending their retirement savings,” he explains. “This book shows investors how to take income in retirement by structuring their investments based on the time frame they need it back in the form of income, and by the investor’s spending needs throughout retirement. This book provides a process for them to use to set their income needs, not a product driven approach.”
Structure to benefit beginning and experienced investors, “Managing Income in Retirement” teaches readers how to:
Manage money in both the “accumulation” years and income years;
How to plan for the reality of living 25-35 years in retirement;
How to identify sources of guaranteed income during retirement; and,
How to determine appropriate “nest egg” amounts.
A natural motivator, Sullivan aims to diminish the fear readers may have regarding retirement and equip them with the tools to realize their post-career dreams.
“I want readers to be able to increase their financial knowledge by reading this book and applying these concepts and to view themselves as the CEO of their own retirement income.”
