Our objectives are to generate high quality and practical research about retirement and personal financial planning, and to help promote broader education to the public about the importance of developing sustainable retirement income strategies. We hope to build this website into a community, and a leading source of objective and useful information about retirement planning for do-it-yourself retirees.

If you have questions that you feel we haven’t answered on this site, please send it them to and we will do our best to answer it as quickly and clearly as we can.

While many advisors approach retirement income questions with pre-determined answers, our research focuses on a wide range of possibilities based on the unique needs of individual households. The best approach to building a retirement income strategy involves remaining open to all the possibilities and how they can meet your specific objectives and constraints.
