RICHMOND, Va. -- The stock market this year has many investors tightening their seat belts and gripping their arm rests: it’s a bumpy ride.

But Sandy Wiggins from The Actuarial Consulting Group in Midlothian says stick to your game plan. In his interview on CBS 6 News at 7 p.m. Thursday he explains why you need to stay focused, and especially, why you need to stay in the game to end up with the retirement nest egg you’ve planned for.
