Live Gay, Retire Rich is Now Available on Amazon!

Live Gay Retire Rich by James Lange

I’m excited to inform you that my latest edition of Live Gay, Retire Rich, endorsed by the top IRA, Social Security, and legal experts in the country, is now available on Amazon.

Live Gay, Retire Rich! is the Second Edition of Retire Secure! for Same-Sex Couples, now updated to include the positive holding of the Supreme Court Case Obergefell v. Hodges and its implications.

For example:

There were two gay couples with identical financial resources.  They each had the same amount of money, identical investments, identical taxes, and identical earnings history for Social Security purposes.   The first couple didn’t do any planning. The second couple followed the advice offered in Live Gay, Retire Rich! Using reasonable assumptions, the first couple runs out of money in 28 years while the second couple has $1.4 million and their portfolio continues to grow.

What was the difference? The first couple didn’t follow our advice; the second couple did. The first couple never got married, started receiving Social Security benefits at 62, didn’t make any Roth IRA conversions, and didn’t use key IRA and retirement plan estate planning strategies recommended in Live Gay, Retire Rich!  The second couple did get married, used our recommended apply and suspend technique for Social Security, did a series of Roth IRA conversions, and used the key IRA and retirement plan estate planning strategies we recommend.

I strongly urge you to pick up my new book on Amazon.


James Lange

P.S. Our assumptions include a Social Security technique, apply and suspend, that may not be available for much longer. Get your copy today and find out if this strategy could work for you, before it’s too late!
