Personal Finance: Retirement Planning I: Essential Concepts

With earlier retirement and longer life expectancies, you may find yourself spending nearly as many years in retirement as you did working. The best way to ensure a financially comfortable retirement is to think about what you want, then make a plan to help you get there. The earlier you start, the easier it will be to reach your goal-even if your savings are modest. This course helps you determine how much income you will need in retirement, and what you can expect from Social Security and employer pensions. It will also identify any shortfall you need to make up through personal savings.
