As we get reminded often, women have a better chance of making it to age 100 than men — in fact, 82% of the 53,364 centenarians alive in 2010 were female. There are even more today. The ratio of females to males age 100 remains pretty steady. It’s why you hear the statistic that eighty percent of men die married, while eighty percent of WOMEN... die single. The big problem for women is that they may spend ten years or longer on their own after their husbands pass--at a time when they may not want to be messing with investments. It’s been found that Baby Boomers’ number one financial fear is running out of money while still in their eighties and then living into their nineties dead broke while the government robs Social Security. We'll see if that fear is justified today, and then health insurance expert SHELLEY GRANDIDGE joins us. A timely show you don't want to miss, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

How often should YOU-- or the person you hire to manage your investments—be buying and selling the stocks you own? Here’s something to Ponder: Every time you sell a stock, there is someone buying it who thinks you’re wrong. In fact, the math is simple: one of you MUST be wrong and time will tell. Who buys a stock when you sell it? SOMEONE has to, and to them what you are selling is a bargain. Are they fools? Actually, most stocks are bought by very large very smart institutions. The price they pay you is the price they believe will make THEM money. Today, we'll take a look at just WHO buys most stocks that individuals sell, and it may surprise you. Then Steve will layout a strategy for avoiding emotional decisions with your money. An important show for you today, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!

Bad news for Sean Penn, chef Mario Batali, Adam Schiff, Cal Ripken, James Comey, Dr. Oz, John Elway, Anthony Robbins, Dave Ramsey and the nearly four million other (still living) Americans born in 1960. Unless Congress acts, the Covid-19 recession will cost ALL 1960 babies about 9% of their projected Social Security benefits! These famous people might not feel it much, but if you were born in 1960, you need to know that you have gotten a big pay cut for life, unless Congress comes to your rescue. For the average worker, assuming they collect benefits for 18 years, the present value of their lost lifetime benefits would be more than $45,000 DOLLARS, due to the formula that has been in effect for decades. We'll explain exactly why today, and then Medicare and health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge will explain how to save thousands on health insurance.

If you can live on your Social Security and pensions alone, and have no need for any income from your investments—ever—then you are fortunate. Most people in retirement today, however, DO need to derive income from their investments at some point. But even if you don’t actually WANT any income from your 401k money, the IRS has other ideas. Once you reach age 72, you are required to begin taking distributions from your investments, like it or not. With bonds paying so little and many people retiring without pensions anymore, what if Social Security goes bust? Now you know why so many smart retiring professionals are choosing NEXT GENERATION annuities to retire on! Steve will review the fundamentals and the finer points for you on today's show. Don't miss it--MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

Adults over the age of 50 manage an increasing share of the wealth in the United States. Risky investment decisions that are made as people age may have effects on both financial markets --AND individuals in later life. FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Association, performed an in-depth study recently to assess how many older Americans—those over 58 with far less time to recover from a market shock than younger investors-- were taking on TOO MUCH risk. And for those TAKING too much risk using standard measurements, they wanted to know WHY. Well today, we'll reveal what they came up with in this really interesting study-- and how it might apply to YOU. Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. ...A fact filled show you don't want to miss....MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!
