medical, utility and other bills to outpace

Start estimating your retirement needs
by using online calculators:
• The Retirement Estimator at www.ssa.
gov/estimator automatically enters your
earnings information to estimate your pro-
jected Social Security benefits under dif-
ferent scenarios, such as age at retirement,
future earnings projections, etc. You can
also download a more detailed calculator
to make more precise estimates.
• Check whether your 401(k) plan adminis-
trator's website has a calculator to estimate
how much you will accumulate under vari-
ous contribution and investment scenarios.
If not, try the various retirement calculators
• AARP offers a retirement calculator to
help determine your current financial sta-
tus and what you'll need to save to meet
your retirement needs.
After you've explored various retirement
scenarios, consider paying a financial plan-
ner to help work out an investment and sav-
ings game plan. If you don't have a personal
referral, good resources include www.cfp.
net, www.napfa.org and www.fpanet.org.
Social Security issues: To make ends
meet, many people begin drawing re-
duced benefits from Social Security be-
fore reaching full retirement (65 for those
born before 1938 and gradually increasing
to 67 thereafter). This can have several
• Your monthly benefit will be reduced
by up to 30 percent. (Conversely, if you
postpone benefits until after reaching full
retirement age, your benefit increases by
7 to 8 percent per year, up to age 70.)
• Although many states don't tax Social
Security benefits, they are counted as
taxable income by the federal govern-
ment. So, depending on your overall
income, you could owe federal tax on a
portion of your benefit. IRS Publication
915 at www.irs.gov has full details.
• If you begin drawing Social Security
while still working, your benefit could be
significantly reduced depending on your
income. Read "How Work Affects Your
Benefits" at www.ssa.gov for details. (Rest
assured, however: Those reductions aren't
truly lost since your benefit will be recal-
culated upward at full retirement age.)
One last suggestion: Once you've
settled on what you think will be a suf-
ficient retirement budget, try living on it
for a few months first before retiring to
make sure it actually works.

Vegetarian Stuffed PePPerS
These barley stuffed peppers make a great vegetarian entrée that packs a punch. You’ll never miss
the beef with the low fat bean and barley stuffing. Use red, yellow or orange peppers for color.
• 1/2 cup barley
• 1 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
• 3/4 cup diced zucchini
• 1 cup black beans, puréed
• 1/2 cup corn
• 1/2 cup chopped Vidalia onion
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 cup shredded low fat cheddar cheese
• 1 3/4 cups no salt added tomato sauce
• 1 tsp chili powder
• cayenne pepper to taste
• 4 bell peppers, tops cut off,
seeds and pulps removed
Preheat oven to 350°. In a small sauce-
pan over high heat, boil barley in broth

a large bowl, combine barley, zucchini,
black beans, corn, onion, garlic, ched-
dar cheese, 1/2 cup of tomato sauce,
chili powder and cayenne pepper and
mix together thoroughly.
Spoon mixture into peppers. In a small

to sauce. Place stuffed peppers, stand-
ing, in casserole dish. Pour remaining
tomato sauce on top of stuffed pep-
pers.* Bake for 45 minutes, covered.
*Make ahead tip: Keep covered stuffed
