MARGATE, FLORIDA - JULY 26: Anita Dante, in her late 60's, searches for a job in a local newspaper's classified section at her home July 26, 2002 in Margate, Florida. After working for most of her life, Dante had planned on retiring, but her plans have changed. A financial advisor explained that she should be more aggressive in her investments approximately 2 1/2 years ago. Dante has since lost most of her retirement nest egg and must now get a job to continue to support herself. Like Anita Dante, many people around the U.S., who are reaching retirement age, are having to rethink their strategy with investments plummeting and 401 (k) saving plans shrinking.
