People in their fifties start to wonder: When should I retire? Once I do, when should I take Social Security? Do I need to buy an annuity to make sure I have enough money to last my whole life? Should I move everything into Treasury Bills and other “safe” investments? In short, what do I need to do now to ensure a comfortable retirement?

"Control Your Retirement Destiny: Achieving Financial Security Before the Big Transition," by nationally known retirement expert Dana Anspach, provides practical how-to knowledge on what is needed to get finances in order to prepare for a transition out of the workforce. While never easy, retirement investing from 20s through early 50s is straightforward. But from mid 50s and beyond, a different kind of plan is necessary to align investments, retirement accounts, taxes, Social Security, and pension decisions, all with a single objective: providing reliable, life-long income.

A transition into retirement can be scary. "Control Your Retirement Destiny" equips readers with the knowledge needed to avoid big mistakes while optimizing the flow of funds to support the retirement people always dreamed of. This book covers all the major topics in retirement planning investments, Social Security, annuities, taxes, healthcare, part-time work, and more. Anspach provides examples of how to coordinate retirement incomes to maximize benefits as an individual or with a spouse. Working with advisors can be confusing, so Anspach shows how to find the best one for those that are not comfortable planning their own finances.

"Control Your Retirement Destiny" is for those who are beginning to think about when and how they might transition out of regular, full-time work. It will enable a financial future right now to ensure a happy, secure retirement.
