How Much Money Do You Need To Retire? (Episode 31)

 

SUMMARY

How do you determine early enough what the magic number is to retire comfortably? Andy speaks to Teresa Ghilarducci, labor economist and author of “How to Retire With Enough Money.” Find out if you’re on track to successfully retire, and what you can do if you’re not. Teresa and Andy have differing views on retirement policy, but share the same goal: to help you determine the best strategy to retire with dignity.
