There are two paths to retirement, the traditional path and the non-traditional path. The traditional path is the one where you work your entire career and decide to retire to a life of leisure with no plans for a future job of any sort. The non-traditional path is a more of a gentle downward slope rather than a cliff into retirement. It is characterized by continuing some type of paid employment and gradually easing into the life of leisure when you sever ties with all employment for good. Which path will you take? If you're like most Americans, you will take the non-traditional path.

The myLAGERS Route to Retirement Planning

What is myLAGERS, and why do I need a myLAGERS account?

I recently spoke with a former colleague who told me she was not even 30 years old yet and she has absolutely no interest in talking about or thinking about retirement or planning for her financial future. She did know when she would be vested in her current pension, but she had no idea how a pension works and couldn't tell me anything about her specific employer's plan. "I'll worry about that in a few years." Bottom line, she sounded exactly like me when I was her age, and my current-age self would love to have a "welcome to reality" talk with my younger self. Unfortunately, I was not convincing enough to make my former colleague take action to support her financial future, but she is now, at least, THINKING about it.
