The article focuses on retirement planning in the U.S. Retirement planning long has been the practice cornerstone for the financial planning profession. It will continue to be, but soon with a different face, possibly a different name and many new rules and issues to live with and play by. Due to rapid convergence of social, political, economic and lifestyle pressures, a new approach to living "golden years" soon will emerge. The U.S. clients-old and new-will be coming with increased frequency to better package their "retirement" prospects, or to handle the outcome of Social Security's looming alteration, or for people to discern that their company retirement plans will cushion the blow of a decreased standard of living, or to recommend that they keep working indefinitely because there isn't any other way, or to counsel them on the financial impact of a life-altering decision. In short, in a world where most people are paralyzed by a maze of too many choices, the readers gives clarity and reality to the situation at hand. More than ever, people need and want that type of relationship.
