Seniors today face a great many challenges not faced by their parents and grandparents. In the twenty-first century the traditional notion of retirement - to stop working and enjoy your spare time - has become obsolete!

Decide where and how you will live. Live better and longer by exercising your brain, continuing to work, volunteering, going back to school, improving your diet, or getting a dog or cat. Understand memory loss and how it differs from Alzheimer's. Start your own business and/or set up a home office. Find how easy it is to become computer literate. See what experts say on protecting your credit, funding your retirement, estate planning, and investment strategies. Gain insight on health matters: buying prescription drugs, assisted living, long-term care insurance, and nursing homes. Understand how Social Security and Medicare work for you.

About the Author:

Art Koff graduated from Dartmouth College in 1957 and did postgraduate work at the University of Chicago Executive Program. He started his career with the Chicago Sun Times and then spent 31 years with national and international advertising agencies. After "retiring" he helped develop and market one of the first automated job-posting systems which was later acquired by a major player in the field. He also helped build a suite of over 1000 niche sites focused on recruiting. As a consultant and writer for the past nine years, he has helped clients develop cost effective strategies primarily by using the Internet to reach seniors and minorities. Art has made presentations at local, national, and international association meetings and at conventions and trade shows. He has made appearances on NBC and is a quoted authority on new developments in national publications and via the Web that affect seniors and retirees. Art lives in Chicago with his wife Normin and his two Westies, Spocker and Duncan.


Invent Your Retirement is the perfect prescription for turning those declining years into a productive and satisfying second half of your life. A smorgasboard of ideas coupled with a pot-full of checklists and a pinch of attitude are all it takes --Gerry Crispin, Chief Navigator, CareerXroads

Art Koff is the living, breathing example of the kind of pro-active opportunistic living that this book describes in practical detail. It is the perfect tonic to jolt seniors out of their lethargy and headlong into their Golden Years --Ted Pincus, Business Columnist, Chicago Sun Times

Invent Your Retirement is just the kind of reference guide that our senior readers need. It provides content on every subject of interest as well as referencing where they can go to find more information. An absolute must-read not only for seniors, but also for younger people responsible for the well-being of senior family members. --Jim Moss, Publisher, The Times Herald-Record
