We've been trained, advised and educated that the key to enjoying a long and prosperous life in retirement depends upon our ability to maximize the growth of our assets so that we have as much retirement income as possible. But as we know, retirement is not the same as it was years ago. Investment challenges, the complexity of investment vehicles, and government intervention have changed the retirement landscape for all of us looking towards a long and thriving retirement. Yet what hasn't changed is the fact that we continue to do the same things that we've done for years when it comes to retirement. So, if you were doing something wrong, when would you like to know about it? Early enough to be able to do something, or do you want to wait until the last possible moment? Currently there are millions of people planning for their retirement and unfortunately what they are doing is wrong. There are many factors for this, including 3 obscure rules from the Federal Government, changes to the cost of healthcare and other items that most Americans are unaware of, that will force people to change their thinking about saving and funding their retirement in the future. In order to help people to save their Social Security benefits, lower their tax obligations, maximize their retirement income and control their health costs in retirement, we've gathered seven of the leading retirement experts writing today to point out the realities of the new rules of retirement and what you can do to take back control of your future. Seven of the leading retirement experts provide the facts, realities and solutions around these topics: oDan McGrath: The New Rules of Retirement oMichael Gerali: The REAL Truth about Medicare and Social Security oRobert Ryerson: Financial Planning for the New Retirement oRobert Klein: The Truth about Annuities oJustin Belair: The New Approach to Estate Planning oJohn Marroni: What to Know about Reverse Mortgages Mike Padawer, author of What's the Deal with Long-Term Care?: The Economic Realities of Long-Term Care With an Afterword by Jack Tatar, author of Safe 4 Retirement: The Four Keys to a Safe Retirement and Having The Talk: The Four Keys to Your Parents' Safe Retirement

Our Financial Lives as Mount Everest I look at our financial lives as a long journey that has peaks and valleys throughout. I often use Mount Everest as a metaphor to illustrate that point. If you think of your retirement day as reaching the top of your personal Mount Everest, the rest of your life is the descent. Unfortunately, most people's retirement plans fail after they retire, or on the way down from the mountain. In some ways, it's easier to get to retirement, or go up the mountain, than to stay retired. If you make a mistake getting to retirement, what do you do? You keep working. You planned to go out at age 55, that's not looking so good anymore, so maybe 65, or maybe 75. If you make a mistake after retirement, what happens? You run out of money. Every successful summit of Mount Everest uses a Sherpa to guide them up, and back down the mountain because they are the world's best mountaineers. In retirement, it's very much the same. The guide who helped you climb the mountain, may not be the best one to lead you down. This is why you need a financial Sherpa guide, one who can steer you away from danger and towards your ultimate goal of a successful retirement.

In the past, retirement planning was focused on reaching "the number" or what the value of our "nest egg" needed to be. For years, clients and advisers focused solely on their "account value" to gauge whether or not they're were going to ever retire. We were told that this "number" was different for every person. Well, the reality is that today, that "number" should no longer the sole focus for investors hoping and praying to retire. Rather the focus should be on "how much" will that number provide in income! Recreating a paycheck in retirement or funding the day to day needs for retirees has become more important that the journey to a specific "number." And this has everything to do with the realities that taxes, healthcare costs, low interest rates, volatile markets and tending to the needs of older parents and your own children have created havoc for any plans that we had to reach the retirement of our dreams. These realities bring into question many of the foundations that we created our retirement plans on - such things as 401(k)s, IRAs and Medicare. These plans were made before we knew about the benefits of Roth IRAs or the realities of means testing raising Medicare costs are demanding that retirement planning be focused on retirement income, not just the value of your "nest egg"! This trend towards retirement income, or what is also known as "distribution" is the reason that we've gathered these authors together to provide you with a book that outlines these new realities. This book was written by financial advisers, professionals and experts who have recognized that the rules of retirement have changed and they're advising their clients accordingly. They have their ear to the current realities and demands of the financial marketplace, and are implementing strategies that are focused on helping their clients to navigate these new realities. The authors of this book are not advisers and experts who are remaining in their comfort zone and advising clients on the same tired old investment approaches. They are professionals who understand the current realities of the industry and willing to venture out of their own "comfort zone" to find investment options that are most appropriate for their clients. With an understanding that every client is different and unique, these professionals recognize that they need to interpret these new realities into customized solutions for each of their clients. As you read the chapters, you'll hear the passion and focus that each of these finan- cial professionals have for the wellbeing of their clients. The key thing to remember as you read this book, is that if your financial adviser is not discussing these matters with you, you may not have the right adviser. And if your adviser is discussing these items with you, then it's important to work with them and integrate this type of thinking into your financial strategies. This book is required reading for anyone nearing retirement, already retired or wondering if they'll ever retire. Retirement can be achievable for everyone. You just have to have the right information, the right approach and the right advice. Allow these authors to help you to understand the new rules of retirement so that you can achieve the retirement of your dreams. That should be the focus of every investor and every financial adviser working today!
