Because of tough economic conditions, Americans' retirement savings don't look quite as good as they did a few years back. Some say the answer is: Work Longer.
Americans are living longer, our health care costs are going up - while the system we've counted on to provide for our retirement is shrinking.
Right now, our average retirement age is 63 - our guest Alicia Munnell says it should be at least 66. Her new book is "Working Longer: The Solution to the Retirement Income Challenge."
Today Where We Live- we'll talk about retirement savings, and what you should be doing now, to prepare for life after work. We'll talk about a new study showing that women lag far behind men in retirement savings, and we'll find out how low-income people are preparing for retirement.
