Lottery Dreams and Lifetime Retirement Income

TheStreet.com published an op-ed by IRI President & CEO Wayne Chopus.

"While very few people will win a lottery, millions of Americans will retire with their own "jackpot" accumulated from years of saving in retirement accounts. The size of a retirement account is not comparable to the lottery, of course, but in both cases, the goal is to not run out of money."
