Advance planning is the key to retirement gold

(This show originally aired on October 21, 2015)

When (if) you make it to retirement, a little advance planning now could be worth its weight in gold on D (for departure) Day.

Benefits expert Tammy Flanagan recommends that people start planning for retirement as soon as they start work — like Day 2. Since few people do, the next best thing is to attend any pre-retirement seminars your agency offers, and to definitely get your act together at least five years before you pull the plug.

Today at 10 a.m. EDT on our Your Turn radio show, Flanagan will talk about what you should be doing now, to guarantee the best deal in retirement. You can listen live on 1500 AM in the D.C. area, or dial 712-432-5393 to listen live from any phone.
