Retirement planning

By Times Staff Writer
Published July 5, 2004

How much money do you need to retire? No, this is not a trick question. But it is a question, among many, that we would like to investigate and report in a future issue of Seniority.

Do you feel good about your retirement nest egg or are you a little queasy? If you are still working, what is the biggest pitfall to retirement planning? What's the best advice you've ever gotten about money or retirement? The worst? If you are retired, how do you spend your time? Have you been able to transition into retirement smoothly? What would you like to do when you retire? What do you know now that you wish you had known before you retired?

Take anyone of these topics, or one of your own choosing, and tell us your story about planning for retirement. We hope to find enough stories that will shed light on what some seniors know firsthand about the good, the bad and the gray areas of retirement. If you have an interesting story to share, write to:
