Master Your Future with Rajiv Nagaich

Master Your Future presenter Rajiv Nagaich is on a mission. His goal is to change the way Americans think about, plan for, and navigate through retirement. Retirement is a bigger problem than you might think. Ten thousand people turn 65 every day, either already retired or with retirement on their minds. Retirement may start out as an exciting time of adventure. But as you get older, that excitement will probably turn into anxiety-and for good reason. Maybe you are feeling the trifecta of retirement fears: fear of ending up in an institution, fear of becoming a burden, and fear of running out of money. If you are, welcome to the club! These are the biggest retirement concerns today's retirees face, whether rich, poor or in between. And the problem is even worse for families with small to medium size estates. In Master Your Future, Rajiv Nagaich explains the grim reality most retirees face. The average plan for retirement is mostly about creating a financial nest egg. But that's only part of the reality. Once you retire, you might live for decades more. Rajiv Nagaich will show you why retirement plan failure is so common. He will also show you what you can do to make sure that your story has a different-and better-ending. Effective retirement planning requires more than just legal planning or financial planning.   An effective retirement plan should be multi-disciplinary, involving coordinated plans for health, housing, legal and family issues, in additional to financial matters. Rajiv Nagaich is an elder law attorney, author, radio personality, retirement planning expert, and the architect of LifePlanning, a comprehensive, coordinated, and multi- disciplinary approach to retirement planning. Since launching AgingOptions in 2006, Rajiv Nagaich has transformed the way millions of people think about, plan for, and experience retirement.
