Planning for your retirement isn’t something you do once, forget about, and hope that everything turns out for the best. Your retirement encompasses the cumulative effects of many decisions throughout your life. Canadians are living longer than ever before, and the average retiree of the future may have to account for as much as 30 years of retirement living.

Continued financial turmoil and lack of predictability has heightened concerns about what retirement will look like. 52 Ways to Wreck Your Retirement takes a close look at the issues that can spoil your golden years, and what to do about them, including issues surrounding:

·         Savings, debt, and money management

·         Investing, risk tolerance, and balance

·         Pensions, taxation and withdrawals from plans

Each chapter provides advice and actionable steps that you can take in order to get your retirement on the right path. So whether you’re still many years away from retirement or it’s just around the corner, or even if you’re currently retired, 52 Ways to Wreck Your Retirement... and how to rescue it can help you put the missing pieces in place and motivate you to take action.
