Retirement is being reinvented. It’s no longer our parents’ retirement. Social Security alone won’t see us through retirement, especially for high-income earners. And traditional “pension” plans that pay generous life-time retirement benefits are a lot less common.
Additionally, planning for retirement is more than just a matter of accumulating a sufficient nest egg. Increasing life-expectancy, and the trend towards earlier retirements, have made the golden years more of an “extended stage” of life. With the advancement of medicine, and many people living healthier lives, it’s common that retirees live 20 to 30 years in retirement.

Each individual has different goals, are in different financial situations, and are at different stages of life.
