“The first dollar you invest in retirement is going to be the most valuable dollar in your lifetime…” – Richard Rausser of Pentegra Retirement Services

According to a new survey released this month, more than half of people with retirement savings have no plan for how they will stretch their money once they retire, with 1 in 5 people not giving this any thought at all. Joining me as a special guest to cover this very important topic is retirement expert Richard Rausser of Pentegra Retirement Services.


Questions for Richard:
