  • Great question. Savings can be viewed as excess income that you don't need to cover your expenses - so you can either increase your income or cut your expenses.

    You can find articles on cutting expenses here: http://www.newretirement.com/Services/Reducing_Expenses_to_Insure_Retirement_Security.aspx

    The other big lever you have is to work longer - so you have more time to save, more time for your investments to create a return and less time that you'll need to rely on your savings & investments. The NewRetirement Calculator may come up with other suggestions for how to generate more income and savings as you plan for retirement: https://www.newretirement.com/retirement-calculator/default.aspx

    Finally many people rely on Social Security for much of their retirement income and you can find articles on getting the most out of social security here: http://www.newretirement.com/Services/Social-Security-Benefits.aspx
