Take Charge! A Woman's Guide to a Secure Retirement puts retirement planning in the context of essential life decisions every woman must make. Topics include viewpoints, philosophies, and myths about retirement-from a woman's point of view, how women are living out (and in some cases, out-living) their retirement, and learning from their successes and failures, the what ifs of retirement-common situations and questions, identifying how much will be needed, and compensating for taxes and inflation, investing for retirement, pensions, social security, and tax traps, and plotting and updating your strategy.
