Best Retirement Books?

Post by Finley2021 » Sat Aug 01, 2020 9:51 am

Specifically dealing with 401K's and Rolling them into something else. Seems like everyone goes that route.

Thanks!

I always like to recommend Jane Bryant Quinn's "How to Make Your Money Last" Get it from the library.

Retirement planning is about a lot more than rolling your 401k over to an IRA. That step may or may not even make sense and (unless you have a really terrible, high-expense 401k) won't make much of a difference.

The Jane Bryant Quinn book recommended above is excellent, detailed and readable.

I suggest reading the wiki first so you can get a sense of what you need to do and/or learn more about: https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Getting_started
