Author Lilian Jackson Braun worked from the ages of 17 to 97 – 80 years.  She wrote novels in the late 1960s and from the mid-1980s to just recently with a thick pencil on legal pads, shunning electronic technology.

Producing one or two Cat Who mysteries per year from about 1896 – 2006, the author did not likely worry about a monthly Social Security check, but most of America does or will. Even with changes in Social Security regulations for 2011, most of us will not need to work to age 97 to collect full benefits; but some of us already must work to age 70.

The goal of our nation is to retire Americans at age 75 and ages are increasing with every new generation after the Baby Boomers.  Lilian Jackson Braun  made all that a moot point by writingt to age 97, but some other changes likely make her shake her head today.

Read the following piece for half a dozen excellent resources for saving money for and during retirement. You may even find a writing opportunity that will help.
