The place where retirement and estate planning intersect is in many ways the heart of this website.
I say that because the ability to enjoy a nice retirement is one of the main reasons we engage in estate planning. Most of us spend 40 years or so working and saving and planning for the retirement of our dreams.
Yes, we know that good estate planning will benefit our heirs. But, we certainly hope it benefits us as well -- at some point. And, of course, that "point" is when we retire.
So, we are building pages that will discuss lots of things relating to retirement and estate planning. For instance, Retirement Planning and the Roth IRA discusses the topic of how your Roth IRA can be used for retirement (and estate) planning.

Soon, we'll have other pages to discuss different financial planning for retirement ideas like the use of self-directed IRA's and other investments that can be used to fund your retirement.
One option you should consider is discussed at Best Low Cost Investment.
We recently discovered a website that explains how to live on Social Security and add $100-$200 a week to your income. It has helpful information about how to find employment, lower your bills, get the best prices, and obtain financial assistance -- while on Social Security. The site is written by someone who's actually done it. You can check it out at Living on Social Security.

|I just want to thank you for this site. It answered my questions. I think many people that do research on the net take it for granted and when they find what they are looking for they forget "someone put time, money, etc into providing me with this information."|
