During this heated political season, may I introduce you all to a psychological tendency we are all extremely guilty of: CONFIRMATION BIAS. This is the typical human notion we all have to seek out news, opinions, memes, etc. that confirm what we already believe to be true. We all want so badly to believe we are right about everything, we will overlook mountains of evidence that we are NOT and grab hold of even totally fabricated evidence that says we are.

You may have a very idealistic vision of retirement–doing all of the things that you never seem to have time to do now. But how do you pursue that vision? Social Security may be around when you retire, but the benefit that you get from Uncle Sam may not provide enough income for your retirement years. To make matters worse, few employers today offer a traditional company pension plan that guarantees you a specific income at retirement. On top of that, people are living longer and must find ways to fund those additional years of retirement. Such eye-opening facts mean that today, sound retirement planning is critical. But there’s good news: Retirement planning is easier than it used to be, thanks to the many tools and resources available. Here are some basic steps to get you started.
