STATEPOINT MEDIA 
 With retirement accounts and realestate values still recovering from therecession, and living costs on the rise,many retired seniors are struggling topay their bills. According to the Na-tional Council on Aging, 20 million Americans, 60 years of age or older, areeconomically insecure.But experts say that with the righttools and planning, you can avoid mon-ey woes.
“The rst step is to get a handle on your nances,” advises Aaron Forth,
 Vice President and General Manager of 
Intuit Personal Finance Group. “Know 
-
ing more about your current nancial
situation means you can more effec-
tively stick to a budget.”
Luckily, new tools are helping se-
niors on a xed income to do just that.
There are many things you can do tohelp make ends meet in an uncertaineconomy:
Work From Home
If ination is causing your livingexpenses to rise, but you’re on a xed-
income, you may want to consider tak-ing on some part-time work to supple-ment your funds. Working from homeis becoming an increasingly easy optionfor seniors who may be less mobilethan during their younger days. Many companies hire part-time freelancers
to complete work remotely. From tu
-toring to transcription services, you canearn extra dollars without getting off the couch.
Budget Online
If you’re still squinting over yourcheckbook ledger, it’s time to try some-thing new.“Let software do the heavy lifting
for you,” advises Aaron Forth, Vice
President and General Manager of In-
tuit Personal Finance Group. “It’s easy 
to make costly mistakes like missing bill payments when you’re doing it all
 by hand.”
Take advantage of free services on
the Internet like Mint.com. For those
 who prefer managing money on the
desktop, purchase nancial software
like Quicken to help you manage your
nances, create a budget, and meet 
-nancial goals.
Cut Expenses
 You may be familiar with tradition-al coupon clipping, but online sites likeLivingSocial and Groupon can help you
nd helpful local deals on the things
 you need, such as medical exams andfood, or the things you want, like birth-day presents for your grandchildren.Just be careful to not get carried away on purchases. The best way to do this isto stick to goods and services that you would have bought at full cost anyway. And, of course, trim back on un-
necessary expenditures. For example,
many television programs are availablefor free online, making your cable billa redundant expense. Likewise, if youuse a mobile phone, consider eliminat-ing your landline.
Even if you’re living on a xed in
-come there’s no need to go into debt.By tracking your sources of incomeand your expenditures, you can achieve
 your nancial goals and avoid debt.
