AARP Finance - Once more interest rates around the world are falling as Governments seek to kick start their economies, so what does this mean for AARP members.
If you have loans it will be good news provided the lenders pass the savings on to you, so what are you going to do with the extra money. AARP members need to set up a strategy to start reducing debts that have the highest interest rates such as credit and store cards. Paying off more than the minimum each month and not using the card will save you money. A Cash Society will get you out of dept.
For many AARP members with savings on deposit a fall in interest rates is a bad, so you need to find ways of earning a higher return, find out which banks offer the better rates. Some AARP members are seeing both their cash and stocks falling in value and are beginning to look outside the box on how to protect their lifestyle. One way to do this is to start your own business. A home business offers many tax breaks and also for retired and semi retired members of AARP an interest to keep their minds active, rather than vegetating at home.
