Personal Finance Round-Up: Generating Retirement Income

The American dream has always been to save enough money so that you are able to retire at an early age. With the cost of living steadily rising, it is difficult to get a handle on just how much money you will need for retirement. It is easier to shift your focus to continually generating income in retirement rather than saving the millions needed to retire.
