News Article of the Week 
Money Challenges (and Advice) for Adults Over Age 55
A large concern for older adults when it comes to financial decisions is cognitive decline. Eric Johnson, Center for Decision Sciences, and his research team found that older adults can better answer questions regarding health insurance and credit cards due to their background knowledge and experience. It is important to note, however, that cognitive decline cannot be avoided completely. Thus, Johnson advises that you start thinking about financial decisions now, not when you reach your 70s or 80s.
