The best chance to retire on your terms is to start planning and saving/investing early in life, do it with every paycheck and take advantage of any opportunity to increase your nest egg (employer matching plans, catch up contributions when you reach 50,etc.). While this may be difficult for some, many others don't think or prepare for retirement until they are almost there. The site Retirement And Good Living provides information on investing, planning, downsizing, frugal living. retirement locations and man other retirement topics that can help those who are planning for retirement or are already retired.

While the recession affected the retirement funds that many people accumulated a major part of the problem is that many people did not plan for retirement and start to save/invest earlier on in life. An earlier start in saving/investing for retirement, taking advantage of any employer matching plan, avoiding risks with retirement funds and planning for multiple streams of income when retired helps to ride out the bumpier times like this latest recession. The key to successful retirement is planning. You have to plan for your financial needs as well as your lifestyle requirements. There are many retirement sites that provide retirement information. I recently found the site Retirement And Good Living that offers information on finances, health, retirement locations and more. It also has a great blog of guest posts about a variety of retirement topics. I never understand why more people do not take advantage of these type of sites. Most are free.
