The 401(k) Survival Guide: How to Successfully Navigate the Slippery Slope of Retirement Planning
by Michael Budnick
In 2014, the author, Michael Budnick, watched a short video by Tony Robbins walking the streets of New York city asking dozens of people questions about their retirement. He asked questions like: “ What is a 401(k)? What are the fees you are paying on your 401(k)? Do you have a mutual fund or a 401(k)? What is a fiduciary?” Tony discovered that most people didn't know the answers to these questions and also that 67% of Americans think they pay no fees. The average is 3.12%. Every 1% you overpay is a decade’s worth of income. The result of this interview opened the author's eyes to how much people need education when it comes to their 401(k) because knowledge is the core responsibility involved in achieving your goals and dreams for your retirement. This book is written for both executives overseeing and/or managing their company’s plans and also for employees who participate in your company’s plan.
