Martin discussed strategies to successfully save for retirement:
How do you gauge how much money you'll need for medical costs and prescriptions?
Is it best to keep a traditional savings account or put it into a CD or another savings vehicle?


AARP National held this Access Live event to discuss the importance of saving for retirement, options available for saving, and why social security is an important part of retirement planning. Joining the call was expert Martin Booker, Program Manager at AARP. Hosts offered advice for saving including doing a balance sheet assessment (add all assets, subtract liabilities; the more leftover, the stronger your financial position), analyzing your spending from the past year to ensure you are protecting your nest egg, and figuring out where to cut back on your spending habits.
