"If you have an employer-sponsored pension plan, you're among the lucky few. Traditional pensionsin which retirees were guaranteed an income for lifeare a thing of the past. They've been replaced by 401(k) and IRA plans that shift the burden of building and managing a retirement nest egg to the employee. The scary part is that most of us are woefully unprepared to handle this responsibility. That's where Your Nest Egg Game Plan comes in. Using simple language, the authors provide an easy-to-implement framework to design an investment program that will provide the benefits of a traditional pension planwhile offering the flexibility that retirees and pre-retirees demand. Rather than touting individual stock picks, painting doom or gloom scenarios, or focusing on 'the number,' the authors take a broad look at all aspects of investing and income generation."
