Can I Retire (2020 edition), Investing Blog Roundup

Another book announcement for today: the 2020 edition of Can I Retire? is now available. Of the 2020 editions I’ve done this year, this is the book that received the most significant update. Some of the changes include:

  • The discussion of annuities has been adjusted, given the new environment in which inflation-adjusted SPIAs are no longer available;
  • There’s a new brief chapter on Social Security and how that fits into a broader retirement plan, especially in a “creating a floor of safe income” sort of context;
  • There’s a new chapter on retirement spending strategies; and
  • The discussion of asset location has been condensed somewhat, given its reduced importance in a consistently-low-yield environment.

You can find the print edition here and the Kindle edition here.
