About the book:
Most people are rich for a single day in their lives: the day they retire and receive their retirement savings. This moment is more critical than many people realise – it marks the change from saving for retirement to drawing an income from savings that will ideally sustain them until they die. All too often, pensioners end up destitute because they make the wrong decisions once they retire.
It is crucial for retirees to apply themselves to securing a sustainable income. This book, co-written by well-known semi-retired journalist Bruce Cameron and respected financial planner Wouter Fourie, provides a straightforward and comprehensive overview of the vital issues that impact on retirement, such as taxation, investments, healthcare, estate planning and where to live when retired. It also identifies warning signs to look out for in order to avoid financial troubles.
This is the ultimate guide to help you achieve a secure and successful retirement. This new edition is based on the 2019 Budget figures.
