Retirement Prepping for the Fiscal Cliff

Financial columnist Gail MarksJarvis lays out planning strategies for taxes, Social Security, Medicare, and more, that retirees and pre-retirees should keep in mind amid U.S. budget uncertainty.

Christine Benz: Hi, I am Christine Benz from To talk about the fiscal cliff hasn't worried the markets too much recently, but investors may still be wondering what it means for their retirements. Joining me to discuss that topic is syndicated columnist Gail MarksJarvis. She is also the author of Saving for Retirement (without living like a pauper or winning the lottery).

Gail, thank you so much for being here.
