Retirement Planning Web Sites
Retirement planning is a subject that hits close to home for many people, no matter their age. Baby boomers are quickly approaching retirement, and many are wondering if they will outlive their money. Gone are the days when retirees could depend on the government to support them throughout the later years of their life. The reality of the situation is that Social Security’s resources are being slowly consumed, while the number of workers supporting it is shrinking, forcing retirees to rely more heavily on personal savings.
