Two of the biggest unknowns (and potentially biggest risks) in retirement are how long you will live and how long your nest egg will last.

To learn more about planning for these two potentially monumental risks and more, watch this on-demand video hosted by Dr. Milevsky, The 7 Most Important Equations for Your Retirement.
Women in Retirement
Women may face additional challenges in retirement, including living longer. Whether you have a spouse or not, there may be a good chance the average woman will spend some of her retirement years alone.
Helping to plan ahead for a reduced income in retirement can make a significant difference in your lifestyle should something happen to your spouse.

Many retirees have heard the conventional wisdom that stocks perform better in the long run. However, that common viewpoint could do many a disservice when it comes to making their retirement savings last as long as they need it to.
According to research by Dr. Babbel, the average stock investor typically earns only about half of what the stock indices show due to:
- Sub-optimal timing
- Sub-optimal selection
- Excessing trading
- Trading costs
- Reverse dollar cost averaging
