Retirement is a time of immense opportunity. Without the routine demands of working life, new ambitions can be realized and new experiences enjoyed. Yet with so much to consider, people are often unsure how best to plan for their future. Furthermore, with rising retirement ages, the closure of many final pension salary schemes and uncertainty regarding universal benefits, the scope for concern and confusion is now even greater. The Good Non Retirement Guide is essential reading for all those looking forward to making the most of their retirement, and offers clear and concise suggestions and advice on a broad range of retirement-related subjects, including pensions, tax, leisure activities, voluntary work and health.

Retirement planning is difficult enough without having to contend with misinformation. Unfortunately, much of the advice that is dispensed is either unsubstantiated or betrays a strong vested interest. In The Essential Retirement Guide, Frederick Vettese analyses the most fundamental questions of retirement planning and offers some startling insights. The book finds, for example that: Saving 10 percent a year is not a bad rule of thumb if you could follow it, but there will be times when you cannot do so and it might not even be advisable to try. Most people never spend more than 50 percent of their gross income on themselves before retirement; hence their retirement income target is usually much less than 70 percent. Interest rates will almost certainly stay low for the next 20 years, which will affect how much you need to save. Even in this low-interest environment, you can withdraw 5 percent or more of your retirement savings each year in retirement without running out of money. Your spending in retirement will almost certainly decline at a certain age so you may not need to save quite as much as you think. As people reach the later stages of retirement, they become less capable of managing their finances, even though they grow more confident of their ability to do so! Plan for this before it is too late. Annuities have become very expensive, but they still make sense for a host of reasons. In addition, The Essential Retirement Guide shows how you can estimate your own lifespan and helps you to understand the financial implications of long-term care. Most importantly, it reveals how you can calculate your personal wealth target - the amount of money you will need by the time you retire to live comfortably. The author uses his actuarial expertise to substantiate his findings but does so in a jargon-free way.

The Essential Retirement Guide will detail saving for retirement– when, why, how, and how much. There is much miscommunication and false information about retirement planning. Inconsistences such as retirement target percentages of final pay, the amount of retirement income needed, and the use of proper investment vehicles, most of which cost hundreds of thousands of dollars more than necessary, all add to the mystification of most retirement planning advice. The book will answer: When should I start to save? What takes priority: paying off the mortgage or saving for retirement? What is the most tax-effective investment vehicle during the accumulation phase? How should I invest? How much money do I need to retire comfortably? How much retirement income will I need? What percentage of my assets can I spend each year in retirement? How will my spending habits change over the course of my retirement? Do I need to worry about the cost of long-term care? Fresh thinking in terms of retirement planning is called for. Actuary Frederick M. Vettese will showcase new perspectives for everyone approaching retirement.
