Take advantage of this online event to get a better understanding of how to save for your future, even if your budget is tight.

Have you thought about how you’ll manage after you stop working?

Get some free advice at “Jump-Start Your Retirement Plan,” a daylong online chat on Thursday, Feb. 20.

Sponsored by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors, the event is designed to help consumers make the smartest possible money moves. You can submit specific questions, such as “I’m in my 40s – how do I get started?” or “We’re on a really tight budget – what are your suggestions?” A score of personal finance advisers will answer those questions and provide information on other topics, including:

  • Related financial issues. How do you pay down debt (especially student loans), make your mortgage payment and put money into a child’s college savings plan when you’re also supposed to be setting aside money for your golden years?
  • Saving for retirement. Learn about 401(k)’s, IRAs and Roth IRAs.
  • Taxes and retirement. Estate taxes, gift taxes and wills.
  • Income after retiring. Investing strategies and tips on Social Security, both for those who’ve already retired and those who are approaching that age.

Along those lines, Money Talks News money expert Stacy Johnson prepared this video on how to get more Social Security.

The online event takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. Submit your questions in advance or ask them during the chat. Follow along by using the #JumpStart hashtag on Twitter.

To recap: Professional finance advisers want to give you help for free. The event lasts all day, so spend your lunch break or your kid’s naptime taking advantage of that help. Work your way through the comments later that evening, too.
