Planning for Retirement or another financial goal can sometimes seem very difficult. There is simply an unceasing torrent of information available via the internet and business cable-news channels, let alone commercials, infomercials, radio and web ads -- much of it conflicting!

Do you have questions about how IRAs, Annuities, 401ks, or Pensions work? Is a SEP IRA or SIMPLE IRA right for you or your company?

Is inflation different for people who are working versus folks who are already retired?
