Do you have a 401k or other type of savings? We all have heard that the Social Security system will be gone by the time most of retire and how the baby boomers will affect this program. So have you started saving money? And have you heard about the new types of IRA, the Roth IRA.....you pay the taxes now so you won't in the future....do you think this is the wisest way to save.

I have retirement accounts (which were 401k's that got rolled over to an IRA from previous jobs). I'm not currently working, so I don't have a 401k, but I did have stock options in my last job that I did partake in, so I imagine that soon I'll hear about that information. I believe in saving for my future, but not to the extent of not enjoying the present. We just have two deaths in our family, a husband and wife. They left behind three children. They had so much going for them. So many plans. You never know when you're gonna go. So make sure that when you're saving for your future, you still have enough money for the here and now!!!
