Publisher's Description

Plan Now for the Life You Want

Today’s economic realities have reset our expectations of what retirement is, yet there’s still the promise for what it can be: a life stage filled with more freedom and potential than ever before. Given the new normal, how do you plan for a future filled with prosperity, health, and happiness? As a companion to What Color Is Your Parachute?, the world’s best-selling career book, What Color Is Your Parachute? for Retirement offers both a holistic, big-picture look at these years as well as practical tools and exercises to help you build a life full of security, vitality, and community.

This second edition contains updates throughout, including a section on Social Security, an in-depth exercise on values and how they inform your retirement map, and the one-of-a-kind resource for organizing the sea of information on finances and mental and physical health: the Retirement Well-Being Profile. More than a guide on where to live, how to stay active, or which investments to choose, What Color Is Your Parachute? for Retirement helps you develop a detailed picture of your ideal retirement, so that—whether you’re planning retirement or are there already—you can take a comprehensive approach to make the most of these vital years.

Editorial Reviews

"offer(s) exercises to help you map your future."
—SmartMoney magazine, 2/1/11

"Nelson and Bolles provide worksheets galore, and lots of introspective exercises, but this is more than a feel-good read. There’s also some substantive financial and healthcare information--including a section about fiduciary advisors--making this book a great gift for clients and prospects in midlife who may be getting ready to think about next steps."
Financial Planning Magazine, 10/1/10 

"so relevant to today’s maturing workforce. Grab a pen and complete the many questionnaires included in the book as you explore the financial, geographic, medical, biological, psychological and social aspects of your perfect retirement."
—Better Investing, 10/1/10

"an excellent book. ...Both Parachute books provide useful insights and a number of exercises to help you make the best choices for this new stage in life."
—Steve Vernon, blogger, CBS MoneyWatch

Investment Advisor
