Mark your calendars: National Retirement Planning Week starts on Monday! It’s an effort led by the National Retirement Planning Coalition, a group of education, consumer advocacy and financial services organizations, to promote the importance of comprehensive retirement planning. Of course, every week should be national retirement planning week. When it comes to securing a comfortable retirement, my philosophy is YOYO (you’re on your own). You can’t squeeze that responsibility into just one week out of 52. Still, a coordinated campaign offers a good opportunity to take stock. Check out the campaign’s website for tips, andread our story on two free tools that can help you determine whether you're on track. For extra inspiration, read about a young couple that saves $150,000 a year.
