NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – A small group of Northampton and Florence residents received Tuesday night some helpful tips on protecting their savings.
People who are 3 to 5 years away from retirement got a chance to speak with Financial Advisor Helen Blatz at the Northampton Senior Center. She told 22News it’s important to have enough money saved up in your retirement fund and your emergency savings.
More people living longer – thanks to the advancing health care industry – means you’ll spend more time in retirement.
Blatz said, “Keep track of your expenses. Make sure that they are not, you know, basically, you spend less, you make. Take whatever you have left over and invest it prudently for your future.”
The earlier you start saving, the better for your retirement.
