Aren’t you always looking for ways to save money?
I sure am! If I can save $25 or $30 a month, that’s another dinner out. So, when you retired did you contact your car insurance agent to let them know that you are no longer driving to work every day and are now older?
In retirement, many people cut the distance they drive per year by 5,000 to 7,000 miles which would result in a decrease in their car insurance. Some insurance companies give you another discount when you hit 60! I also wanted to let you know about the AARP Driver Safety Program ( http://www.aarpdriversafety.org ) since in many states you can get an additional 10% discount on your car insurance when you pass that course. WOW, was I ever excited to find out today that you can now take that course ONLINE and it's even cheaper. I immediately signed up today, since AARP is offering an additional discount on the course if you sign up by Dec 31st. It takes 8 hours but you don't have to complete it all at once.
So, if you're looking to save a little cash, don't forget to review that car insurance policy immedidately and make sure they have down the correct number of miles per year and your real age (this is one time you don't want to lie about it)!
