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.
