Jane Bryant Quinn to discuss retirement issues at Fairfield Library
Best-selling author and financial journalist Jane Bryant Quinn will discuss her updated book, “How to Make Your Money Last: The Indispensable Retirement Guide,” on Jan. 19 at the Fairfield Public Library.
Quinn is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. in the Rotary Room of the main library, corner of Old Post and Post roads. The program is free, but advance registration is required.
In library publicity for the program, Quinn is quoted as saying: “What’s the biggest worry for people planning to retire or retired already? ... They’re afraid they might outlive their money.
“The question of how to stretch your income and savings over 30 years or more has never been so important.”
Quinn is expected to touch on topics such as recent changes in Social Security; determining how much income can be safely withdrawn from savings; sound investments, and the value of annuities.
The book has been in print, with regular updates, since 1991.
Quinn wrote long-running columns for Newsweek and Women’s Day magazines, and a column syndicated to 250 newspapers by the Washington Post. An Emmy Award-winner, she appeared on both the CBS-TV morning and evening news, and hosted her own show on PBS.
