This year, we expanded our survey to include men and women ages 25-64 as well as Hispanics and adults over age 65.</p> <p>For most people, good health is tied to financial security. But many are worried rising health care costs will rob them of that security in the future. Here's what we found:</p> <ul> <li>75% of consumers fear health costs could jeopardize retirement</li> <li>44% worry health costs will limit ability to pay for child's college education</li> <li>Top three cost concerns: hospitalizations, spouse or partner health, medications</li> <li>Those who participate in the chat can get tips for managing health costs</li> </ul> <iframe width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Tb6UqIUoEqE"></iframe> <p>For more information about the survey, visit <a href="http://www.Cigna.com/knowyourbenefits">www.Cigna.com/knowyourbenefits</a>.</p> </blockquote> <p><b>New Parenting Chat Immediately Before #WBChat</b></p> <p>Our sister blog <a href="http://parentingsquad.com/">Parenting Squad</a> (<a href="https://twitter.com/parentingsquad">@ParentingSquad</a>) will be hosting a parenting chat every Thursday at <b>11:00 am Pacific</b><span style="font-weight:normal">.

The top three answers included:</p> <ol> <li>Work on a budget to reduce debt or find new ways to save (42 percent)</li> <li><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;">Learn how to become a better investor (24 percent)</span></li> <li><span style="mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;">Develop a financial plan and investment strategy (13 percent)</span></li> </ol> <p>Unfortunately, for many finding time is a challenge. To get started, Fidelity has developed a <a href="http://go.fidelity.com/mptr"><span style="mso-field-code: &quot; HYPERLINK \0022http\:\/\/go\.fidelity\.com\/mptr\0022 \\t \0022_blank\0022 &quot;"><u><span style="color:blue">visual roadmap</span></u></span></a> to provide tips to navigate each of these financial priorities, many of which can be addressed in 60 minutes or less. While many place managing finances and long-term planning on their &ldquo;to do&rdquo; list, other priorities often take precedence. In fact, nearly one-in-four women report they don&rsquo;t take part in their household financial decision making at all. Fidelity is encouraging all to #TakeAnHour and invest in their financial future. To participate, share how you will spend an hour addressing your finances by posting to Twitter or Facebook with hashtag #TakeAnHour.

Roth joining us!</h4> <p>J.D. Roth, the founder of <a href="http://www.getrichslowly.org/blog/">Get Rich Slowly</a> and <a href="http://www.jdroth.com">More Than Money</a> will be joining the chat as our special guest for the week!

Roth and Get Rich Slowly: The Unconventional Guide to Financial Freedom</h4> <p>Here is a message from J.D.:</p> <blockquote> <p>A decade ago, I had over $35,000 in consumer debt -- credit-card balances, personal loans, a car payment -- and was living paycheck to paycheck on an average, middle-class salary. I &nbsp;spent every penny I earned and had no savings. Today, I'm debt-free and have more than a million dollars in the bank. Some of that is due to good fortune, sure, but a lot of it is because I decided to take charge of my finances, to manage my money as if I were the Chief Financial Officer of my own life.<br /><br /> After building GetRichSlowly.org into a hugely successful personal-finance blog, I spent a year creating the <a href="http://moneytoolbox.com">Get Rich Slowly course</a>, which is designed to be a complete financial toolbox to help you take action. The course includes a 120-page &quot;Be Your Own CFO&quot; guide, a suite of detailed interviews and additional resources, and a weekly email course that lasts an entire year. This course contains everything I know about money, all in one place.</p> </blockquote> <h4>New Parenting Chat Every Tuesday at 11am PST</h4> <p>Our sister blog <a href="http://parentingsquad.com">Parenting Squad</a> (<a href="https://twitter.com/parentingsquad">@ParentingSquad</a>) will be hosting a parenting chat every Tuesday at <strong>11:00 am Pacific</strong>.
