Prepare a one page write-up of a retirement plan. You might want to use your own circumstances or  your parents. If you are not employed, make assumptions.

1. Go to:          money.cnn.com           \

                        Personal Finance (top of page)

                        Money Essentials

2. Under  “Money Essentials” read:

            a. Retirement Planning Module except for Estate Planning

3. Feel free to use other calculators and resources to develop your plan.  For testing purposes, I am more interested in the how the basic retirement plans work rather than details that change from year to year.
