Today President Joe Biden is slated to announce that he’s moving his deadline for all adults to be eligible for a vaccine to April 19. This new date is about two weeks sooner than his original deadline of May 1.

The president will deliver his remarks from the White House after a visit to a Virginia vaccination site.  He is also expected to share that this country is the first to administer 150 million doses of the vaccine. So far over 75% of Americans over the age of 65 have received a shot, while more than 55% of that population is considered fully vaccinated.

Social Security isn’t necessarily as secure as you need it to be. That’s why saving for retirement should be one of your biggest financial priorities.

Make sure that your non-working years will be enjoyed without the threat of debt hanging over your head. People can make very common mistakes and accidentally sabotage their savings.

One such mistake? Not taking full advantage of an employer match. If your workplace offers an employer match, that means the company will contribute to your retirement fund based on your contributions. In other words, it’s free money. Be sure to double-check, then triple-check that you’re claiming all the money you’re eligible for.

What other errors should you avoid?
