Your 100-year life and how to plan for it

Season 2 Episode 34

Your 100-year life and how to plan for it

In this special episode of Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday Wealth™, we’re revisiting three of our most popular guest interviews, all focused on living longer and how to plan for it. First, Jean speaks to Ken Dychtwald, founder of Age Wave, about how retirement is changing and what retirees can do to prepare both financially and mentally for a longer life. Then, Jean welcomes Michael Clinton, author of Roar: into the second half of your life (before it's too late), about the importance of finding purpose and connection in our later years. Later, Erin Smith, a director of estate planning at Edelman Financial Engines, joins Jean to discuss the essentials of an estate plan and how an advisor can help.

Meet the host: Jean Chatzky

Jean Chatzky came to personal finance not as an economist or a financial planner but as a journalist who dug into the topic of money to get her own money in order as well as to earn a paycheck. She has the innate ability to take the complicated world of money and explain it in ways we can all understand. And this has never been more important than now because we all have more responsibility for our financial lives than any generation that came before us.

The financial editor of NBC's TODAY show for 25 years and the financial ambassador for AARP, she appears frequently on CNN and MSNBC and was a recurring guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
