The AARP and the Hispanic Federation held a free workshop at El Museo del Barrio, so New Yorkers preparing for retirement could learn how to keep their finances stable in tough times.

Experts gave advice on how to reduce debt and manage credit.

"Financial situation demands our attention, and it demands that we be prepared because times are not the best right now," said participant Eddie Agosto.

"I wanted to learn as much information as possible, because even though I'm not at a retirement age yet, you start to think about what's going to happen with Social Security, when is a good time to retire," said participant Peggy Hernandez.

An AARP survey shows nearly half of Hispanics 50 years and older say they will have to delay retirement if the economy does not improve next year.
