Perhaps one of the biggest myths in our society is that your retirement years are easy. Sure, quitting your job may not require much effort, but the rest of it--such as knowing how to manage and invest savings wisely and how to negotiate the maze of Social Security regulations--is hard. Doubts and uncertainity persist. And answers are hard to come by.

On Tuesday, President Clinton signed legislation aimed at balancing the U.S. budget and giving Americans $95 billion in tax cuts. J.D. Rinde, West Orange County district manager for H&R Block Inc., finds that "kind of exciting." For the last several years, he said, most changes in the tax code have affected primarily businesses and investors. "This year there are pretty good changes that will affect a lot of lower- and middle-income people," he said.

Kemp, a leading economic conservative in the Bush Cabinet, leveled surprisingly strong criticism at the President for his decision to allow taxpayers to reduce the amount of income tax withheld from their paychecks.

Q. Two years after being forced to take an early retirement, I find I could really use some of my individual retirement account funds to cover my living expenses. The only problem is that I am 57 years old. I understand that there is some provision in the tax code permitting taxpayers under age 59 1/2 to make early withdrawals without penalty. Can you explain the rules? --J.P . A.

Q: I began drawing Social Security at age 70 and because of the delay, my benefits are 115% of what they would have been at age 65. My wife began drawing benefits on her own account at age 62. When I die and my wife begins drawing widows' benefits on my account, what amount will she be entitled to receive--the 115% that I was getting, or the basic amount I would have received at age 65? -- W.K .

The House voted, 221 to 209, Thursday to approve a Democratic alternative to President Bush's package of election-year tax cuts, but the unusually close margin embarrassed the Democratic leadership and virtually ensured a presidential veto. The Democratic measure was adopted after the House voted, 264 to 166, to kill a rival Republican plan containing a streamlined version of the economic stimulus package that Bush had asked Congress to pass by March 20 in an effort to combat the recession.
