YOUR IRA PRIMER

IRA's are an important tool used in retirement planning.  I discuss the differences between traditional and Roth IRA’s, and the key benefits of each.  I’ll also detail the need to keep IRA beneficiary designations up-to-date.  Unfortunately, that’s one of the most common mistakes one can make!

CASH & COUNSELING PROGRAM: CARING FOR AGING LOVED ONES

Americans are living longer and for many of us our retirement years may be lengthier than anticipated.  For some, money runs out, and family members must pitch in and provide care.  I discuss long-term care insurance options, and a little known program offering financial help for family members caring for a loved one.

FROM THE LISTENER MAILBAG

A 55-year-old listener submitted that question to AskSteve@CFNPlan.com. She writes, “How would I survive a market crash as I approach my retirement years?” I offer some perspective and discuss a variety of investment options that may be helpful should we experience a market crash or a major correction. We also will cover what an insurance or annuity “stress-test” is and how you can get your portfolio tested here at CFN. Our stress test will help show how your portfolio would fare in the event of a market crash. Do you want your question to be featured on the radio show? You can email us if you have questions or comments to AskSteve@CFNPlan.com
