Ben Stein Talks Retirement

New York Times columnist, financial author, and movie star Ben Stein has released a three-part educational video series in which Stein gives an easy-to-understand overview on how Americans can financially prepare for retirement – from tips on selecting a financial advisor to investing strategies to the importance of “retirement income” and how to get it.

The series is full of good, basic information on the fundamentals of retirement planning — a great resource for those wondering how to plan for retirement as well as those who need a brief refresher course on the subject.
