The old notion was to stop working the day you turned 65 and coast quietly on a fixed income from a pension, Social Security and a few modest investments. A Pew Charitable Trusts March 2015 survey of 7,845 people, taken between Nov. 6 and Dec. 3 of last year, found that 53 percent of Americans expect to shift into a new type of work in retirement.

    A recent report from President Obama's Council of Economic Advisors concluded that inappropriate investment advice is costing retirement savers $17 billion per year. Some investment brokers have a financial incentive to recommend the products and services that will make them the most money, rather than the investments that will produce the best outcome for the client.
