Actually, we like two.

How do I plan for my retirement? has been prepared by the Employee Benefit Research Institute and the American Savings Education Council. Every underlined word or phrase in their planning worksheet is linked to an easy-to-use online glossary. Tip: If you wish to prepare different "what if" scenarios, don't use your browser's back button to input your data; instead, re-enter their worksheet by clicking on the above link, or via your own bookmark.

The Retirement Planner, from the editors of CNN and Money magazine, is our second choice. It does not offer you the option of inputing your assumed rate of future inflation. While your results will be adjusted for inflation, it does not tell you what inflation rate is used. And, while it contains nearly 7,500 entries, its glossary is not as easy to use.

Working after Retirement

Many people work after retirement — to avoid boredom, because they enjoy interacting with other people, or for intellectual stimulation. Others need the money — perhaps they underestimated the amount they'd need to retire, or they can't afford to fully retire. Whatever your reason, if you're still working, or if you're just thinking about a part-time job, volunteer work, or a second career... visit our page Working after Retirement for information that can help you find a work situation that is financially and personally rewarding.
